Thanks -- better perspective from your unit than my street-level shot!

P.S. If you actually insert the attachment into the post, MyBB will scale it properly. If you don't insert, it's not scaled and ends up being cut off on the right side.

I just see tarps going on now, no heaters yet.

Talking to the foreman, I don't believe they will be using heaters.

The specific chemical mix in the concrete can be tuned to work with a given temperature, I understand.

So apparently the concrete forming trade that was working on this project closed their doors last week.  I wonder how long until they can find someone new to take over?

WOW, I hope they didn't pay them too much in advance...

That's crazy. Usually with a contract this size that's enough to keep a company afloat

A big contract will also stress a company's cash flow as they have to buy materials and pay salaries well in advance of being paid by the customer.

That's true I hadn't thought of that side of it
