2013-2014 Snow Season

Written by WildHeart on . Posted in Uncategorized

This 2013-2014 snow season has been unlike any other in the past twenty years. It’s been record setting. For contractors who get paid by the inch, this was an incredible time, yet for those that have set pricing on snow contracts, this could have been a season of great loss or just breaking even in costs.

While records were set with temperatures, snow and ice, this also produced several challenges to contractors. There was an ever-increasing need for rock salt and calcium chloride. With the increase of demand, vendors were selling out and prices began to soar through the roof! It was even reported that Port Newark, New Jersey’s largest depot for salt distribution became “very, very, low” and could not help walk-in customers. With that said, if you did not prepare in advance, you may have had to pay much more than you anticipated towards the end of the season.

Wild Heart was grateful to relieve some stress to our clients with our salt deliveries. We could not help everyone, as we were limited on supplies, but for those that were able to get some salt during the crisis time, it just felt good to hear their sighs of relief.

In the meantime, would you like to know some 2013-2014 cumulative snowfall totals we were able to retrieve? I think you’ll be surprised at the actual totals.

Hillsborough – 65.2 inches

Piscataway – 65.6 inches

Princeton – 61.9 inches

Sayreville – 60.8 inches

Somerset – 62.9 inches

As we are nearing the end of March, spring-time is right around the corner. Yet, it’s amazing that we still have a forecast looming over us that says we have a 35% chance of snow arriving on March 26th!  I have no details on how much is expected, but we’ll certainly keep you posted!

Most Recent Demolition

Written by WildHeart on . Posted in Uncategorized

On March 13th, 2014, WIld Heart Bulk started the first Sayreville home demolition under the NJ DEP Blue Acres Buy Out Program.  TV and news reporters were on the scene to speak to the owners of the home and watch the actual demolition take place.  Theresa and Martin Kuczynski’s home was the first of four homes that Wild Heart was contracted to take down. This was an important and sensitive time for all parties involved as many of these homes were damaged due to the forces of Hurricane Sandy. In fact, eighteen feet of water came through this area and it was the third time flooding occurred in three years.

Governor Christie and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection came together and established funding through the Blue Acres Buy Out Program. This program purchases homes for its pre-storm value so owners can move to a safer location.  Once the homes are taken down, the area will be considered open space.

Sayreville Mayor Kennedy O’Brian was on site, as well as Richard Boornazian of the NJ D.E.P. and NJ Assemblyman John Wisniewski of D-19.  Around 12: 15 pm, the owners gave Wild Heart the approval to start the equipment and begin work by yelling together, “Gentlemen, start your engines!”
