    The contractor came today to put another 14 ft on our 28ftx30ft. Coverall. It will be 30ft wide by 42ft long now.

    Why do you have to rub it in JDDave? Are you just a poor sport? A show off? Kick a man while he is down and can't get bulk any cheaper than bagged? Am I forgetting any?

    Just messing with you, it looks great! I am truly jealous. Is there such a thing as salt storage envy?

    We'll get our loads in next week. That's actually salt in there with about 5 ton of sand that was dumped to the side and kind of got spread around somehow. We only generally use salt but last year we got some sand in for some back lots when salt was scarce last winter. We don't have a problem getting salt around here yet so I'm not worried about getting salt next week. Usually we would have it full by now but I have to have it near empty to put the Coverall up.
