SINKHOLE

My friend Julia is petrified of massive things that occur in nature that are out of site. . . ie: glaciers, tectonic plates, and most assuredly this.

This sinkhole (caused by Tropical Storm Agatha, in Guatamala City) swallowed an intersection and a three story clothing factory ... which had only closed an hour before it fell into the earth. It's estimated to be 30 meters wide and over 60 meters deep. holy jesus.

my man and i are OBSESSED with sinkholes. they're so scary but so intriguing. it's not just like a hole in the ground where you fall in and whoops there you are at the bottom. god knows how far these things drop! and it's weird to think there is a hollow layer in the earth like that.

I saw this too, it's so scary. Definitely a sign from the environment... I feel like we always forget that we are not stronger than storms, and get constant reminders of that.
