Watch Where You Walk ‘Sinkholes’
There’s been a quite a bit of talk lately about sinkholes. The picture above is of a sinkhole in China. Yep, houses and entire buildings have been falling into them. And lately people have been falling into them. A golfer in Illinois recently fell 18 feet into a sinkhole while out golfing.
It makes you wonder. The earth is always changing right? Shifting and settling and in some cases possibly eroding right below our feet. I think it’s a phenomenon that will be heard of more and more. One of the places I wonder if we’ll be hearing more about when it comes to sinkholes is the region of North Dakota where they’re doing oil work.
When I was growing up I remember hearing about sinkholes out in pastures and in lake beds. You can bet there is a lot going on ‘under what we see.’
If nothing else it’s maybe a good idea to walk around with that GPS mode switched to on with your smartphone. At least they’ll be able to find you if you fall into a ‘sinkhole.’
