Joyous Effort: Sanding the Road for Buddha Hall Construction

To prepare for the scheduled pour of concrete into the next section of Faswall blocks on the upper floor of the Buddha Hall we had to loosen up the sand which has gotten wet and then freezes. All those conditions make it very difficult for the sand to flow through the sand spreader attached to the tractor.

So, with joyful minds, we got out the yogurt containers and shovels and we sanded the road by hand. The system works well and we enjoyed seeing our efforts bringing results and ensuring that the concrete trucks can get access to the site.

The pour was called off the next morning because the concrete pump and the inspector’s vehicle slid off the road!
