Re: So What Now?


Nick,

It's nuts right now.(Just like Dirt said).

We had a slower construction spring but it looks like the fall will be catch up time.

Think we may need some plastic over the holes and heaters to keep going longer.

We'll see what the weather brings come December 1.

Re: So What Now?


you gotta love globel warming. I have 4 pool decks, a 10,000 sq.ft. drive, and 2 patios to do yet this season. I finished up a pool deck last year, correction, this year in the second week of January here in Nebraska.
