Never A Dull Moment…

Today( Yesterday) was probably one of the weirdest days of my life…somewhat fun if i may say so myself. Some work was being done in my backyard, one of those caterpillar graders was doing it’s thing in my backyard, now while doing it’s “thing”, it drove over our absorption pit, and BAMM!!! the pit started collapsing, the grader quickly drove out of it before it got sucked in(lol), a few minutes after, i ran out with my camera shooting like a madman; hehehe while asking questions. Pics of the collapsed pit are shown below:)

More photos can be viewed here

Now it was beginning to get dark so they called it a day, they parked the grader and went there seperate ways, i also snapped some pics while this badboy was parked. Now about 3 hours passed, mom is home we are in her room talking when all of a sudden i heard a rumbling sound, i thought it was a earthquake or something, but my brother quickly looked out the window and realized that the big grader thingy was drifting away, it drifted right into the pit, now if the pit didn’t collpase, then it would have no where to drift to and that my friend would have been a diseaster, my life rocks:)

Your free to look at all the shots i took here

    wow, quite an experience, if it wasn’t for t hole, what would it have drifted towards?

    Well, it would have probably totalled our unfinished wall, hit down a few banana trees and probably end up in my neighbour’s 2 story house, and we don’t talk to that neighbour btw, now that would have been a real diseaster
