We never stop. I just try not to plan on cold or wet days. Don't leave mulch on a trailer overnight. It will freeze and be a PITA to get off and spread.

We just put down 48 yds. Brown dyed just prior to 18 inches of snow being dumped on us. 95% of it went down easy. The other 5% was frozen clps that had to be chopped up with digging shovels.
