If we summarized the 1st quarter with just one word, the magical word would be "wet".
Production was slowed at almost every mill due to the extremely wet winter weather. We've mentioned it before, but when it rains/snows/sleets, it takes a lot longer to dry out the cut lumber and ultimately get those beautiful planer shavings that our customers desire.
The good news is that as spring and summer come along, production will speed up everywhere. Things will get moving at a faster pace, and we will have more shavings. Additionally, we are picking up another mill location, which should help expedite shipments to our customers.
Thanks for the patience and understanding.
