If they were to shutdown for a month to work on things. Wouldn't they need to plan that in advance for the wu's that would expire while out in the field?
No, I don't think you're getting the idea.
They'd shutdown for a month and maybe leave us with no work to crunch for almost a month. They wouldn't necessarily give us a month worth of work first. But during that time they'd do useful work instead of constantly fighting fires, and the project as a whole will be better when it comes back.
