    What the HECK? Is that Saudi or UAE? That must have serious torque to run that blower.

    That thing will wear out in, no time. It's like a big sandblaster.

    Wouldn't it be just as easy to drive over it or around it than to blow? But, want do I know?

    Well you know it's a union job because they have 2 guys in the truck to do that job, though I have to ask where the supervisor is.

    They're actually removing sand from the roads, huge sand storms will completely cover the roads much like snow drifts do.

    But you don't want to get caught in a sand storm, unless you want to feel what it's like to be surrounded by belt sanders against your skin.

    Thats what jersey is going to look like after this winter! We are going to have so much snow, we are going to run out of salt! Then we will go to sand, and at the end of the year have to clean it up!:D
