Washout!

We've had lots of rain the last week in Maine, and this morning I came across a video on a local news channel's website that shows what happens when a road washes out. It is an amazing piece of video! I couldn't figure out if there was a way to put the video on my blog, so this is the next best thing. Visit this site for a look:

That is a cool video - unless you are dependent on the bridge to get to work. My weather-geek husband loved it.

What an amazing video. When the pipe burst up it looked like some sort of subterranean creature coming up for air. Scary!

Thanks Sue...I had not seen this although I knew there were several roads closed in Freeport area...I wonder if it will ever stop raining...even yesterday and today the sun shone some but it had to rain...we need to hay sometime here...at least finish the last field...before 'Fall" and then there is second crop ...it is getting serious for so many farmers...

Holy smokes!! What a mess - it will take some doing to fix that hole! I knew we've had a lot of rain, but all this damage on top it it - wow! This state's DOT is already stretched to the limit! We need a break for crying out loud.
