:If these guys are pros, they are used to working outside in all conditions.

Yes, they are certainly used to it. I was told that they have been
together at this company for a minimum of 6 years. Even so, I know how
much a shock cold weather can be in the winter. Around here it's nothing
compared to most places in the USA, but compared to where I grew up
(Southern CA), it's harsh. Plus these guys are Mexican and I bet some of
them grew up south of the border. So far, they've done what looks to my
inexperienced eye to be good work.
:> Late yesterday afternoon I faxed my signed bid to the company who first

:> What affect does the rain have on all this? Thanks for your answers.
