I mentioned that I would be filling sandbags this week and this tip was given to me; I'd thought that I would pass it on.

Sand + sandbags + shovel = a big pain in the bottom.

Sand + sandbags + shovel + traffic cone + ladder = lots of fun for everyone.

Step 1: Modify Your Cone.

Cut the top off your old traffic cone.

Step 2: Invert Your Cone.

Set up your ladder so that it can support the inverted cone and that's it.

It was fun trying out this new method and it really does help.

Step 3: My New Invention.

I like the use of a ladder to support this. I have always done this with a folding table plus hole cut through it or a piece of plywood. This seems a bit easier and portable.
