    Here's what's on the other end of the line when you make that call to CHEMTREC. Idle curiosity. Knock on wood, I'll never have to call them.

    Do you still live in "Not Colorado Anymore" or did you move to Las Vegas?

    Kind of the real life Ghostbusters? Big bucks to call them guys in,,I know it sounds terrible, but if I had a chemical emergency, which would never happen, but you wonder if one would be better trying to boogie. Some cell phone camera would probably rat you out. Cleanup costs, especially environmental, can break a company, with cleanups costing in excess of $100,000 PER SITUATION! :eek:

    Somehow, I see a EPA cleanup bill being sent to the company, see how long it takes to for them to cough up a hundred grand. :cool:

    True that. There's good money in disaster remediation. I just don't want to be the first one in on major spill, especially something that's volatile in oxygen.

    I hear ya'. I hauled a lot of toilet paper out of Green Bay, nothing hazardous about that, until after it's used, of course.
    I read, Colorado is doing away with the "color wheel" for the virus next week. Up to local govts. if they want to enforce the mask thing. I'm sure they want things "back to normal" for the upcoming tourist season. Missed out on a lot of revenue last year, but somehow, our local PD managed to get 4 new cruisers,,:dontknow:
