The purpose of this thread is to figure out what the 50 gallons of dirt stored in buckets in the shop is there for.
It's about 98° outside right now so I'm finding some indoor stuff to do which today involves cleaning up our work area.
Underneath one of the work benches is a sizeable stack of plastic containers all of which contain a very fine, almost powdery sand. This dust doesn't especially special as I'm finding lots of twigs and rocks mixed in with little bits of grass, but for someone to go through the effort of bringing all of it inside there must be something valuable here.
For the moment a few handfuls are doing a fine job of soaking up some oil.
I'm hoping that someone who has been here will know what these buckets were for.
