Shut down....

Not sure of the plant but heading to a shutdown by Brandon... it starts about the 7th of june well at least thats what they've told us should be about a 3week+ job i hope. Not much going on here for crane rental work so heading out that way for a few weeks think were working 12hr shifts but plan to tour around a bit thats if i drive out still debateing that.

Hey, I think a buddy of mine is working on that same shut down.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

I just moved from there. Work was getting slow because of low natural gas prices. That's not to say there's *no* construction or other work, but it's just not as crazy like it was in the past few years. There's still work up there, and eventually the gas prices will come back up. Definitely not a boom right now, though.
