    Well ThursdaWesday I found out the place that we buy our bag salt and Ice melt from, Got cut off at the mine:cry:


    So on Thursday, Bossman92 & I started trucking salt! We got most of the salt that they had, The plant in town had 5 skids left when I was done:D
    We fit 20 skids in there!!! We wanted 30 but couldnt get them.

    I bought all the bulk I could and I'm still trying not to use my salt when it snows, same as you. After this week I'll start using my stock again, if not I'll have stock for next winter too.:drinkup:

    Yea, there is a plant about 20mins away that has some, and were buying from them right now! But they will be running out soon to.

    All the retail stores in town here are out of salt

    The other main guy in town, uses bagg from the place i got them from, would be a shame if he couldnt get any more salt. LOL

    His Clients would have to call me, and that was part of the reason we got so much stock up, is if they call we could service them:D

    Ya think. I'm driving down the roads and theres just piles of salt in the middle of the road. The crew at University of Buffalo dumps so much salt outside my dorm you could fill up your vbox from one sidewalk. Such a waste.

    I turned off all phones so I can get my paperwork caught up on. I had distractions when doing this, I lose track of what I am doing and that is not good. Phone will be back on in about 2 weeks after I get the desk cleaned up. lol
