As part of it’s ongoing health initiative, our county has replaced the salt trucks with fresh ground pepper trucks…

The farmers almanac says this winter will be one of the worst in 100 years.  Extra salt trucks needed AND pepper trucks

I would like to invent a pepper truck to follow behind salt trucks and even out the flavor of the roads. #tastyroads #Yeezus

In my world every salt truck would be followed by a pepper truck. It only seems right…

With winter here today, we’ll start to see salt trucks. I can’t wait until the season changes and we get back to the pepper trucks.

Welp, the salt truck just came through again. Here’s hoping the pepper truck makes it soon so that our seasoning is balanced.

The salt and pepper trucks are out in Germantown. Chefs with grinders hanging out the windows and driving real slow.

Lots of salt trucks are on the roads…but you’ll be hard pressed to find just one pepper truck out there with them.
