The Sand Man arrived, drove the giant dump truck through the big double-gates of our side yard and right through the back yard to dump a pile of sand. First, my friend's brother Matt dug dug dug the weeds and plants out of the pool garden. Next, our son David dug out more dirt. Now we need to fill an even foot deep by 70 square feet, which equals just under 3 cubic yards, or 8100 pounds of sand. David and I both expected to see a much bigger pile of sand and wonder if this is truly 3 cubic yards. It'll seem like a that pile never ends once David starts filling the wheelbarrow over and over and over again! Ugh, the pool looks disgusting! David and his friends left all the floats in yesterday, then it rained and rained, which always starts an algae bloom. Clean up and chemicals tonight.
