If the pallets are on the dirt, they will be eaten up in a year or so. If you have them on a pallet and the pallet is set off the ground on a few bricks and it is covered with a tarp or a piece of wood, they will all last a long time.

I put about 200 in my basement a couple weeks back and Old School is right, it was no easy task. I was only able to carry about 8 - 10 at a time, very heavy indeed.
I was a;so told if you store them outside you shoudl keep them off the earth as the dirt will reclaim the natural stone over the years. (?) Just passing this along, no personal experiance in seeing that.

On edge, and where ever you have the room. It is rock, so the weather won't bother it. If you can cover the pallets, they will keep longer (the pallets)and the slate will not fall on the ground.

The attic or basement work too, but you have to carry them up and back down, or down and back up if you put them there.
