So, did I mention how soggy it was on Saturday? Yup, we had a little bit of rain. Yesterday morning, on my way to church, I found the west half of my road closed to traffic. On my way home in the afternoon, I stopped on the other side to find this. Of course, being the curious type, I had to get out and investigate. My camera is still on the other side of the country with my husband, but Ben recently purchased one of his own and was kind enough to let me take a few pictures.
There is small creek that runs through the fields and orchards and under the road here. It is not a very big creek, but can get moving pretty fast when a lot of rain falls. Apparently the culvert under the road has been washing away over time as there is now a rather large sinkhole across the westbound side of the road. It doesn't look as though anyone had an accident there, no tire tracks or car parts, just a big hole in the road. I think we'll be driving an alternate route for the next several weeks.
