Last week's wind storm took down our driveway gate. The pole was already rotted off, the wind just forced my hand into replacing it. I dug the hole and battled with the saturated ground draining into the hole. Anyway, I got the pole in, plumb, with a bunch of concrete, 240 pounds and let it set. However, it was cold over the next three days, temps below 30 degrees, the concrete didn't set. Finally, after about four days, the concrete was set and the gate is back up and deterring visitors,... >;-)
