    Not really snow related but its what I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.

    This is the Rock Island plant for the company that I work for. The building use to be a horrible bright blue color with white trim. Finally talked the boss into changing it. He picked the colors ( I would of chosen something different ). It took 58gallons of paint to get it done. I bought a 300 dollar airless Wagner sprayer from Menards and went to town. It turned out alright and the company saved about 8 grand doing it ourselves.

    Next time use some old cardboard on the ground so you aren't crop dusting the sidewalks (also works really good on the windows-just cut to size with a hole in the middle for you to hold it with). Looks good!

    Thanks guys! It was a pretty fast and easy job. Im use to painting heavy equipment with little nucks and crannies so the nice flat walls were a nice change.
