Road widening on Rte. 105 outside of Boone NC. This formation looks to be very dangerous due to the slope of the layers.

The contractor is allowed 15 minute closures several times per week. I think this time, he needed more like a few hours.

In FL lane closures for major road projects are only allowed after 10 PM.
As with all things, FL is just so much better than all the rest.

These idiots include states that have less people than my county:

Have you considered that maybe your watering schedule was ineffective? It could have worked, it you had been more consistent with the watering schedule. A good long soaking works better than a light sprinkle.

Going from memory from high school earth science, it can take from Ĺ to 1 million years to grow a rock enough so it doubles in size.

Of course if it's the wrong kind of water, it can shrink by half.
