I used to think sinkholes weren’t real. But when they started appearing in Florida and parts of South America, I thought they were just isolated incidents that were confined to these locations. Boy, was I wrong.
A terrifying sinkhole just appeared on my New York City block, and it’s only about a mile away from my home. Having just biked past this intersection the day before, I could have easily ended up being swallowed by this force of nature.
Check out the damage below, and see just how these random, destructive events can literally tear the ground out from under you.
I guess I’ll have to follow the detour now.
I wonder how long it’ll be until this is fixed.
I think I’m going to have to find a new bike route. To be honest, though, I don’t really feel like going outside anymore. This is just too much.
