Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 10th May, 2022)
Sahara Sand Sunset
It looks pretty on the photo but when the sand gets all over your car then it looks messy
We had this in Appley Bridge, its funny how it can be blown all the way from Africa
The only sand I saw last week was when I had turf ripped up and Golden gravel put down over a membrane ……I’m sure It was in a large bag of sand.
Veronica they sell you 800kg/1 tonne stone but they always scoop up some sand to add to the weight. You should get nothing but gravel its dear enough has it is..If there is a lot of sand bag it up and get it weighed then ask for a refund
The jobs done now Peter P there was 2 tonne of gravel ( so they said) it looks very thick on the ground anyway. It was loose in the back of the wagon ready for tipping by the workmen.
They took all the soil and turf away the day before they did the job of laying everything in.
So I didn’t need a skip than goodness……there was a bit of sand and cement for the edging bricks. I don’t think it blew in from the Sahara. ;~)
It's Saharan dust that gets high into the atmosphere and gets blown over here, the majority of dust in the Sahara comes from the dried dung from desert animals, Camels and Nomads that hither and thither across it, so the folks in Shevington and Appley Bridge now know what they have been breathing in.
I have lived in Saudi Arabia for many years sand storms form in afternoon the world turns orange But evenings in Saudi have a beautiful purple hue after sand storm
