Well digging, wet and sticky

At 36 meters the soil type has changed. Now it's wet, as you can see by the mud on the side of the auger head. It's possible that the crew will hit water tomorrow, if they can get down another 10 meters. So far no rock! The crew members are tired and a bit hungry because their boss man didn't bring food supplies. They used my cell phone to talk with him and he promised to bring food out yet tonight. This is super heavy work, the kind that requires FOOD. I would be more sympathetic to the problem but I pay an extra fee to cover food costs. Let's see what tomorrow brings. In the meanwhile, the dust gets thicker every day. I would love to see some water coming out of that well by this weekend!
