So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Sand!

My nice little job measuring the Thomatalerbach has one disadvantge. This year, where we’ve had so much rain, the river brings down with it loads of sand, which flows into the reading area. Muggins here has to shovel it out as it goes over the numbers. Quite hard work, but I’ve a shovel with a long handle for traction. Its not unpleasant on a hot afternoon with my feet in the water and at least I’m paid for the time, but I just wish it would stop raining so much!
