Bortz Hardware in Greensburg has been a popular place for winter-related items, but getting the stuff has been tough.

That’s where KDKA’s Ross Guidotti found Dave Skoloda, who said his mission was simple: get as much salt as possible.

“I’ve been married for 30 years. Kelly is a fanatic about keeping the driveway clean. I have a bad back so she’s out there shoveling all the time. So my approach to getting salt is happy wife, happy life,” he said.
