    My husband is at the compost giveaway now. He arrived at 8:30 to wait in line, and he texted me to say there were about two dozen cars ahead of him  and people were already loading up on compost before 9am. The line ahead of him is down to about a dozen cars now, the line behind goes onto 16th Ave SW (though not sure how many).

    Compost giveaway is done for today – none left. The rep said they may offer another date in April.

Sorry, comment time is over.
