A new sink hole...
I guess this happened last weekend so it might have been posted. However, I found it pretty amazing that this 75 ft crater caved in (reportedly) in 30 seconds. Wow!!!

Okay, I give up on posting the picture...but here is a link to the pic

9. why can't something like this happen at the bush ranch ?
You know while he is asleep and the entire admin is there for a cook out . You have to wonder if this sort of thing is the result of landfill or from sucking the earth of all oil and resource .

Florida is full of soft spots .

6. The guy was quoted saying...
his insurance would pay for the house but his equity is in the land (which I guess he is considering not worth a lot at the second). However, I am wondering if they will give him a hard time on the claim.

7. They probably won't give him a hassle.
In Florida, the standard practice is, that the insurance company will pay off the full policy, then cancel you.

But, you'll never, ever be able to buy insurance from anyone, ever again.
