Holy hole, Batman!

Worst November Ever was pretty worst, but now it seems to be rolling into December.

A friggin' sinkhole has opened up in my back yard. Oh, not a big one -- maybe a foot across. But it goes down for a good three feet. There's a concrete wall along one side, and it's four or five feet from the house, so I assume it's an old cistern or septic tank. The question is ... why now?

I keep picturing those sinkholes in places like Florida that swallow whole houses.

    1. Well, that *might* be what the hole was for ...

  2. I wouldn't wait around to find out.

    This is one of the reasons I don't want to own a home. Renting makes it easier to get out if something goes horribly wrong...like sinkholes....

    1. Yeah, but owning a house ... nah, it doesn't even out.
