    Denver had mid to upper 50's yesterday, this morning it started to snow (our 1st of the year), sub zero tonight, single digits for a high tomorrow and colder than a well diggers a$$ till Monday/Tuesday.
    I prefer the warm ups becasue the piles never get out of hand and it makes stack management really easy. JMO

    Yes but if wouldn't have those warm- ups to melt those piles. You would have to move them to make more room an money right?? payup So I would rather it stay cold. then have those warm-ups (JMO)

    You are absolutely correct, however I don't have a skid or loader. When stacks become an issue I have someone who does who'll take care of it.

    You guys are probably getting what we got yesterday, and it you like cold you'll be happy as hell.

    Ya it changed quick. You can still make a little $$$ off having that other person move piles for you. Heck I started off with out having that or sanding trucks when I was a wee lad.. Sub it all out tell I had a reason to have them. Still Sub out some of that. in this Industry It's hard to support a fleet anymore, To many Low baller's an crooks out there!!!!

    it's time to party, HAVE A GOOD NEW YEARS!!
