The Incredible Sinking Street

This is what it looks like at the end of our road. That end has always been funky - there's a little pond to the right of the street - you can't really see it in the picture - and for reasons we've never been able to quite figure out, it has always been pot-holey and rough at that intersection. I'm betting that the deluge of water we've had lately is too much for whatever poorly installed drainage was under the street, and the whole thing just gave way.

There's still room enough to sneak around the mess in smallish cars, but I'm not sure how safe I feel that is.

And the precipitation continues. We're up to about sixty three hours of non-stop rain. And there's a lot more where that came from...
