Just saw it on the news, a nasty little sucker that just enveloped the roadbed. I take my hat off to the MoW crews, those guys have a long day and night ahead of them...

I saw that in the news too, hopefully that sinkhole will be fixed up soon so that we can have Green Line Service once again, I hope that the sinkhole doesn't expand though :-(

Oh good, the need to, with all the hoopla we've been getting around here, plus the anticipated crowds for tonight's event, we'll need to have service in good shape.

All right, sounds awesome, let's just hope that sinkhole doesn't come back again.
