Anybody else notice much less dust on the boat along with the absence of the USG plant din? Has the plant been closed, or just shut down for routine maintenance?

Hmmmm

Not too much sheet rock being sold these days. No new homes, not much in the remodel front either.

I bet it's down to a skeleton crew until business picks up.

Business is way off. I think they are only running one shift. There hasn't been an ore ship at the pier for months. They used to get one or two a week. Most of the trucks are gone. On Sunday I only see 13 or 14 ready to go on Monday rather than 40 or more. Things are tough all over. That's why the marinas are so empty.

Its funny, since the 9W bridge has been out, i have been gonig by the plant severAl times a week and noticed the same lack of activity.

Also, as a coincidence, I am near to closing a deal to do some work directly across the river (actually a little North of USG) at LaFarge, I believe they produce the same product and are upgrading their plant significantly.

The bridge is still closed? Wow. How long is the project going to take?

When I drove by the plant today, it looked pretty dead.
