    That's fine depends on where you are at. Up north things grind to a stop in the winter or at least slow down a lot due to winter and here it slows down in the summer due to the constant rain. Some guys up North I know that hail construction equipment/materials start running plows and loaders for show removal to stay busy in the winter.

    Had 5 trailers loaded outbounds when I punched in at 0600 , boss lady says our house carrier is overbooked.
    Trailers should have been long gone.
