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.
Serendipity brings you the collapsible cone.
