Walkure down, Phoenix Rising - Getting naked
Semper_Dad
Stripped down to her birthday suit - 6 cubic feet of media recovered. All that media had to go somewhere. Most fell within a few feet of the blasting area. Some recovered from inside car. "Dust zone" about 20 feet around blast area. So much for "dustless blasting".
