Dear people, you have blown me away. BLOWN ME AWAY. I have lots more to say – I need to respond to so many comments about so many issues related to my sandhole post(s) – but I just needed to come by to say THANK YOU for getting the word out about sandhole collapses and how to prevent them. I post about this every year, but somehow this year you guys made it go viral, and in the last week, over 500,000 people – half a million people! – read the post. That sound you hear is my jaw on the floor.
Thank you, dear readers.
I counted up the comments on the giveaway post (both on here and on Facebook) and plugged the final number into the random number generator for the giveaway. The generator picked Michele (there were at least three Micheles who commented; I’ve been in touch with the one who was selected). Thank you, Michele, and everyone for what you did to get the word out.
And thank you, also, for all your kind and thoughtful comments. I look forward to responding soon!
