Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Masonry in the northern states - what issues are there for doing in the cold? - seems like always try to get of it.  I worked on a case that claimed "un-safe conditions" just to push it to spring, others insist on pushing to spring - does it cost that much more, is it just the power of union, ie guys off or claiming un-employment?  Or is is done in winter all the time, and just a coincidence.  The project was extended, simply from the owner not needing it right away - not because of a delay, but the contractor added a calendar for Masonry starting March 13th.  Does that seems reasonable.  Other than it being unfortable - the only other issue is heating water correct?  Not sure what else you have to heat or at what temp. it is too cold for masonry?

That is awesome, thanks.  Issues 50% of the country really doesn't worry about...Buffalo is getting some delay claims right now...6 ft of snow in a few days!
