1.25 TONS

Ever wondered what a ton of sand looks like? No? Okay... Me, neither. But now I know. Seriously. MORE than a ton. A ton and a 1/4th. That's right - 2500lbs worth of sand. That's 50, 50lb bags. I started with an optimistic 20 bags. And it was soon more than apparently that 1000 lbs was a gross underestimate. So then there were 40 bag. 2000lbs. 1 ton. And the sandbox? Still not full. So I made one final trip. 10 more bags. 500lbs more. And after having spent all afternoon either making trips back and forth to the store or dumping bags in the sandbox it looked close enough to me.
