Not to Self: Cancel Trip to Guatemala City
By now most people have heard about the destruction and tragedy of Tropical Storm Agatha in Guatemala City. Most people have also seen pictures of the giant sink hole that formed in the middle of the city.
Now DBSF understands that sinkholes happen. And, some sinkholes—like the one in Guatemala City—can engulf an entire block. But, this sinkhole—more specifically, its infinite depths—is a different beast.
If DBSF lived in Guatemala City, he would have to be concerned about what the city was actually built on. Because from the looks of things it appears that there’s like two feet of concrete, twenty-five feet of soil, and then abyss (presumably populated by mole people).
