Not to mention, curing concrete generates heat of its own.

They won't pour concrete in Texas when it's below freezing, but winter doesn't stop construction in NH. I'm sure there's some lower limit, but they seem to pour concrete no matter how cold it gets.

They won't pour cement in ohio under freezing either, but the heater ought to do it.   :)

I think they add glycol or something to the cement mix.

Beth and I have been in NH for 8 days.... and had NO IDEA this was going on.  I would love to help, and Daisy would love to roam, out there.

And now I have insurance for the project, so if they get injured I don't have to shoot them and bury them out back.
mark is trying to make our backwoodsmen all city-fied

Jim and Roger are there everyday that the weather is reasonably clear from 8:45ish to 3:30ish. I am there on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays. You and Daisy are welcome. We pretty much have any tool you might need.

Mark can loan out the craftsmens', but his main tool is taken by a lovely and currently pregnant soon to be mother.  As for Beth having her OWN tool, hmmm, I'll have to wrap my brain around that one.

Enough about Ms. 221's tool...sounds like a challenge to me anyway.    ;D

If people would like to come out and help Sunday, it will be in the high 30's and partly sunny.
I'll set up a BBQ grill.

Bring a hammer...and drinkables of your choice.

Let me know if you can come, 239-8506...and if you need directions.

10:00am till 3:00pm Sunday, Feb. 3rd, 2008.
