Southdown Sand AVAILABLE!!!

To all in the chicagoland area. I was at Home Depot in Bolingbrook and they had about 2 dozen bags of Southdown left after I got mine. Typically, Home Depot uses TC sand out of Chicago around here.

Is the TC no good, or is SD just better?

TC is not a caribbean sand, nor is it oval shaped. TC is the plant on Halstead by the river who also supplies concrete companies with sand.

SD is just better.

It was outside on a pallet in the lawn and garden section in clear bags with white and blue labels.

I've got the southdown with the little boy on the front. I got it at the one on boughton and naperville road. I called all of the home depots at the time and they were the only ones. When I bought mine, there were about 20 bags left, but that was a month ago.
