    Is that what that is? I guess it was kinda cold last night but its Houston... if the city is taking precaution, I didnt get the memo :( how can you determine its salt?

    It is obvious to those who have lived in cold snowy weather too many years.

    Run your fingers across it. It will feel gritty, but in an odd way. Not like dirt.

    And like @FB2Chris said, you could always lick it. Go on! Lick it!

    If you need something with salt on it to compare it to, this is what mine looks like right now.

    LMAO, I might just do that.

    The last time it snowed in Houston was 5 years ago. :/

    I could always put regular salt on the table and compare the feeling. Instead of licking, I think ill finger.

    That does look vaguely similar. I guess its harder to see with a grey car.

    I thought part of Texas was hit by a bad ice storm? They probably put salt down as a precaution.

    Fortunately, Houston is the furthest south major city of Texas so we only got chilled winds.

    Salt also leaves a whitish hue on the paint....
