Man, I can't believe how expensive everything is in your areas on the North Side. River gravel is $30 a yard around Ross Twp area. I can get it for $16.50 if I'm willing to travel 20 minutes or $20 a yard two minutes down the street. I feel bad for you guys. I'm sure everything is more expensive also. And no place to dump also. I'm glad I live more north where I do.

I have a neighbor that has a big compost pile and a brush pile. I also know a farmer with a burn pit and I can dump leaves in his fields after the corn is combined. I'm glad I don't have to pay for anything. I do feel bad though, for everybody that has to search for a place to dump.

never knew you needed that, why? figures they would make a license hard to get for something that is good for the environment

Yeah, that rain sucked today. We worked a couple hours, but we were all soaked through, so we called it a day. Looks like the same thing tomorrow, I hope not though. I need to get some better rain gear.
