Taking a break from my weekly spouting off that only gets me in trouble with some readers, this day-after-Christmas newsletter is a roundup of the most popular news stories of the past year. Interestingly, the most popular story by a significant margin is one that we are running the follow-up in the January issue, George Garber's floor slab experiment. We'll get the concluding article posted right after New Year's Day. I hope your holiday was joyous and energizing. You'll need the energy with World of Concrete only three weeks away and construction going full tilt!
