At Work on The Waterfront

A front end loader gets sand/salt from the pile so it can be loaded into massive trucks for transport throughout New England.  With the fierce return of snow and ice in the past couple weeks, it will definitely go to good use…before it’s collected again at the end of the year and put to use once again.  It’s really quite incredible to see these massive mounds of minerals reduced to a sheer cliff as they are scraped away.  Another fascinating evolution that happens each winter here on the Piscataqua River in Portsmouth.
