Good news for beet farmers

Good news for beet farmers

The idea of using beet juice to melt snow

makes me chuckle, mostly because it makes me think of the beet-farming,

over-the-top Dwight Schrute on NBC's "The Office."

All joking aside about the way Schrute would love this use

of beets (his character once monologued about how to best display his

wares in a roadside stand), it's an interesting use of a natural

product. It seems to fit pretty well with the movement toward "green" ways of living.

Plus, it seems like beet farmers might have trouble finding a market.
