Up here in Toronto, we had a main thoroughfare (sp?) get washed out BAD in August, a stone'* throw from my house. They're still rebuilding it

Basically a whole section, four lanes wide, about 100 feet worth, all gone, just a big gaping hole left.

That traffic cone must do a lot of good down inside the hole.

That'* how we found out about it the other night! We were in the Jeep and just ignored the road close sighn figuring we could handle a little road wash out with our setup. But the jersey barriers about 10 feet in front of the washout kept us from going any further. So we went back yesterday to see why they were there, turned out it would have been a little more than we could have tackled Hope nobody found it the hard way before it was blocked off
