Too much mud … a job I couldn’t do

Yes, my favourite topic – the construction site across the road. They’re almost done with the augers and looked like one was packing up. I spoke to one of the workers and he said they have just the north side left to drill. I’ll try to get some more video before they go. But …. this picture is why I don’t think I could ever do construction work:

Photo of construction worker surrounded by mudWay – too – much – mud! Holy smokes it was like a mud bath over the weekend. Swimming in pools of water.  When I took the photo this morning, most of the water had drained away. Still a lot of muck about. All those metal girders sticking out of the mud are the reason for all the drilling. The augers drilled holes for each one. When the steel thingy was dropped into the hole, it was filled in with concrete.  The site is ringed with them.

Not sure I’d be able to handle being up to my eyebrows in mud. I have problems when there’s mud on the floor, can’t even imagine working with this much mud and dirt. They are made of sterner stuff than I, across the road.
