Sinkhole!

Holy water excavation, Batman! It wasn't a traffic accident, it was a sinkhole! (Live video.) The guy from the city water department on TV said that a big water line failed overnight, dumping thousands of gallons of water under the road a minute. The parts of the car I saw wasn't separated parts of a car -- the rest of the car was below the road!



That's about 300 yards from my house.

I just got finished checking them out. That's wild to see something like that period, but in your own neighborhood just intensifies it.

If you made it through before 0300 this morning, you would have been fine. ;-)

Well now you can't say nothing interesting ever happens, right?

I've never claimed otherwise. It's always an adventure with me. :-D

Creepy! Seattle had 2 of those from a similar water line failure a few months ago. One was small, but the other one was HUGE. They're still working on repairing it.
