More rain overnight and all is sodden. The river has burst its banks. By morning the worst of it had moved off east and I had quite a good day at work. The onyx can be turned by hand now which helps as I can work on all sides. I have cleaned the sides and have decided to leave the top and bottom rough.
I drove into the field to fetch a new block of the clear onyx and almost got stuck in the mud. I left a hell of a mess. It seemed like such a good idea putting the spare blocks out there.. I did not think it would get this wet!
