Currently I work as a temp at the county road department in my home area. It's a great job, but also the most insanely boring job in the world at times. 6:30am to 5:00pm, monday through thursday. Most of the time, I'm out on some backroad that maybe 6 other people know about, standing in place for the entire day, sometimes without seeing a single car to let through. It's AWESOME.

The upside to all of this is that when you're standing in the same place for ten hours, you usually end up seeing something cool. I've seen hawks grab snakes out of fields, beavers running across roads, and the occasional county resident flipping me off over something I have no knowledge about. I try to take pictures when I can with my shitty phone, but a few of them turn out pretty nice.

The crew had to put a huge fish culvert in the road over 4 days, the culvert was in three sections. Each time we put one section in, we had to bury it all the way, move the excavator on top of it, and dig another pit where the excavator had just been, all to keep the tiny amount of traffic on that road moving. It sucked. I walked into one of the waiting sections and took this on break.
