It felt as if the ground was swept away beneath my feet!
The wind is roaring in the trees and the night sky is pitch black covered with thick clouds. This is a night when the easily scared shouldn’t walk alone by the bog or by the creek as it showed today. All that’s missing is the howling by wolves and it would be a perfect horror movie night. Still it’s not even 5 pm yet 🙂
I drove by the super market as I always do on Fridays after work, like all autumns and winters I bought fire logs (or heat logs as they tend to call them now days) and something nice to eat. But I also finally bought a new bird feeder, the birds have pecked apart the walls in the old one so the seeds just fall out as soon as I pour them in it. It’s quite nice the new feeder and I’ll show You a photo of it tomorrow.
I was curious about how it looked down the creek so we went down there as soon as I came home. The water level has actually sunken some despite all the rain we’ve had lately. So we could walk our usual route without having to walk in to wild hog territory. Bertil followed us like always but wasn’t happy at all about going down to the creek. We passed the place the wild hogs have dug up searching for tasty roots and was just walking on the road where the creek flows under the ground when it felt like the ground was swept away beneath my feet.
It actually was swept away beneath my feet and I fell down in to a sinkhole 🙂 🙂 🙂 I was lucky though because my feet hit some solid ground, had I fallen down just a few centimeters (an inch or two) I would have missed the solid ground and fallen down into the creek 🙂 🙂 🙂 I wouldn’t have drowned though because I could see that I would have been able to stand up within a meter (much the same in yards) or so and been able to walk up from the creek. Would have been nasty cold though and smelled like bog water 🙂
I managed to find a smaller tree trunk that I placed in the hole and then I walked home and warned one of the land owners in that area about the hole. Tomorrow morning there will be hunters there and it’s not good PR for the area if they and their cars falls down into creeks through a hole 🙂 🙂 🙂
It’s time for that pot of tea again and something to eat as well. Strangely enough I didn’t buy anything special to eat when I was at the super market but I did buy a Cedar that I’ll have as a Yule tree this year 🙂
Have a great day!
