KEENE, N.H. (AP) — The only thing missing was the waffles.
Authorities were in for some sticky times when a load of maple syrup shifted in a tractor trailer and leaked very slowly all over a main highway.
Police Sgt. Thaddeus Derendal said 220 gallons of the pancake-topper from a Vermont producer oozed onto New Hampshire 101 on Monday afternoon.
Firefighters used squeegees to corral the mess and poured kitty litter on it to speed the drying process. The two eastbound lanes were reduced to one lane while the cleanup continued.
