    Two nights worth or 25 ton - was hoping to lose about 5 of that tonight but not.

    We are so far behind last year it, I think I bought more salt before Christmas last season than I did all this year.

    Salt prices really should drop for next year, here's hoping for that.

    Sitting on 50 ton right now. Not sure about what the salt company is going to do since I didn't come close to my quota.

    prolly got 10 tons sitting in the container now. I have no problem letting it sit in there over summer as we lined the walls and floor with 3/4" ply. Only problem is getting it out to move the container back to our yard as its currently on site.

    only used about 30 tons so far approx. projected use was 60 tons.

    There's a month of winter left, any responsible contractor will have 3+ applications of salt on hand. It's safer to sit on salt then be caught with your pants down.

    About 100 tons of snow slicer. sitting on 4 sites, and 65 ton at my shop. Was hoping to burn through another 37 this weekend, but we couldn't get a full salt run, it kept breaking apart as it slid north. only used 8t. We will have the same problem of emptying containers that are way below projected usage, so far only 50 ton out of 110 projected on the site locations. and only 450 to my shop, down from 1500 last year. edit-Most likely salt company will try to get you to rollover same contract for next year if you are way below quota.

    For sure, Thats why you gotta have connections! Being good friends with one of the biggest salt distributers in the state (at least) comes in handy! I have approx. 300 gallons in my immediate vicinity. But have access to over 550 tons+ of rock and 30,000+ in liquid.

    Im set!
