These photos were taken April 28/20.
Following my “Sinkhole” series, we went back 2 days later on April 28/20 and as they say, “You Can’t Go Back”. Who are “they” and why are they saying “that”?
Oh, the road was still blocked to vehicular traffic and we had it pretty much all to ourselves, until we heard a rumble and shortly thereafter, a gravel truck roared past us to the site of the sinkhole.
As we got closer, we could see the track hoe in place, digging out the old unstable, soggy soil, scraping in new fill and getting ready to repair the road. Seems, during the times of Covid 19, some work can still safely continue.
In addition to the repair work, the flood waters were almost totally gone, as were all the migratory birds. We were certainly lucky to have been a witness to the whole scene on April 26/20.
We tried one further walk on April 30/20 and turned back even sooner, as there were more gravel trucks whizzing by. We assumed it would be only a matter of time before the road reopened and sure enough, one lane traffic was permitted as of May 1. Sigh, there goes our walk.
Holding the Line
Starling holds the line,
sinkhole repair underway.
We’re fenced in again.
