150 tons is equal to 30,000 pounds of sand. As I see it, it's like setting up a line of dominoes: if you knock one over, the whole setup is ruined and comes falling down. I hope Brad Goll doesn't pile up too much sand or knock into it accidentally.

Brad Goll of Austin, Texas, works to turn 150 tons of sand into a giant sandcastle on June 27, in Pittsburgh's Point Park. After ten days of sculpting, the project will be finished for the start of the Pittsburgh Regatta, July 2.
