Sinkhole on Ellsworth Opens Portal to Alternate Universe

Neighbor Rachel reports there was a water main break on Ellsworth at Jarboe last night. The break created a small sinkhole that provided a rare glimpse at the watery realm that dwells just beneath our feet:

We woke up last night to a loud sound under our house at about 1am. It sounded like it was coming from our basement. After checking it out, and seeing a wet sidewalk across the street, we called 311. Soon after, when police & water dept arrived, water was gushing out of sewer vents down the hill. Jackhammering began at about 6am.

Good times.

  1. Wow! Is that an underground river or just a drain?

    eeek! Rachel…hope all is ok. Need more cookies! : )

  3. Okay Todd, I love your blog just based on the headlines!

  4. I think this is related to last year’s sinkhole on Ellert @ Bennington — beware the Bernal Kraken – hope those SF water guys are appropriately armed…
