I guess one of their water lines burst and yeah, created a giant sink hole under the lift tower. I'm surprised that's possible given how cold it has been but I guess that water is probably pressurized and if the pipe/hose bursts a lot of flow could happen in a pretty short amount of time.

Actually, thinking about it, if the pipe was deeper than about 2-3 feet, it probably wasn't in frozen ground anyway! It's not like we get permafrost up there!

That's F'd UP!!!!! Anybody hurt??

Less than 20 days and your normal Topsheet dings from lift lines and maybe some from the occasional bonks Dave and I did with it.
