If you look back at the last few blogs…I would say just remember, but I can’t remember so :)...you will see that I ran out of sand to cover up the lines. Thankfully there is a very good company that delivers to this area. For about $250 total, not extra, they brought out 8 yards of beautiful sand on the 7th of December. This is way better than using a dumb trailer. First of all, I don’t have to drive out there! Second, my fathers dump trailer only holds about 4 yards so it talks two trips. Second, the sand is wet so it is to heavy at 4 yards for the dump trailer to lift. So I ended up shoveling out half of it anyway. I really did not want to do that again! Thank God for Dump Trucks and the Hat Creek Construction Company!
It was so cold some of the sand stuck to the metal inside the bed. But all the driver had to do was take a shovel and lightly scrape it and it all came out. Definitely way better than having to throw it all out by hand!
Parting was such sweet sorrow!
And now I have something to work with!
But if I remember correctly:) that day I was not feeling well at all. The cold pressure was really giving me a headache. So I waited until the next day to get back to covering up the wire. Of course by then, it has snowed and it was all covered!
For some reason, in the snow, the walk seemed farther.
But I was slowly getting it done, bucket by bucket. I had finally made the turn to the Dust Collection Room.
The white pipes are old drain pipes to when that room used to be a live stock washing room.
I finally pushed to a spot that I could use the wheel barrow. That helped a lot. But moving sand is hard work, especially in the snow, so I quit just a after a short while.
That is it for this one! Definitely so much more to follow!....
