Sand, sand, sand and more sand



This is what our front garden looked like last Saturday morning. The sand from accross the road blows over and piles up on our front lawn and blows into the house. Colin and a "helper" swept the lawn and cleaned up all the sand and now it looks much better.

The problem is that the piece of open ground belongs to the Department of Education and Colin e-mails them regularly, ignores our problem completely! We even had an inspector from the Department here last year to come and have a look at the mess, but he couldn't promise anything. The other problem is that people with their big 4x4 bakkies drive over the field, making the problem worse, and then our glorious neighbours allows their kids to drive around the field on their quad bikes, compounding the problem even more!

Any suggestions? I think we should go to the newspapers, but Colin seems reluctant to do that.

I mustn't let my cats see that field - kitty litter heaven.
The down side of where you live, I suppose.

Oi, that is not good. I know about sand; I lived on a building site for almost a year with neigbours on both sides and across the road building simultaneously!!! Worse than anything, the annoyance of sandy floors --yuck! Sorry I aint go no helpful suggestions.....
