    I'm assuming my salt got delivered with a tad too much moisture. Or picked up extra moisture during a warm spell we had a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, the last 2 weeks have been bitterly cold. And now I have a solid chunk of salt that is 12 feet wide X 7 feet deep X 5 feet tall. Best guess is its 25 tons or so. Can't even break it up with the teeth on the skiddy! What are my options? Really want to either use or at least move it before I have more delivered.

    Seriously? Go to your local tool rental shop and pick up a jackhammer. It'll eat right through it.

    Pour a bunch of liquid Calcium Chloride over it, that will soften it up.
