(SKYKOMISH, WA.) – It is rather large, it’s a hole, it opened unexpectedly under a man made structure – US Highway 2 near lovely, historic Skykomish, Washington - therefore it is a sinkhole.

A hole that sinks. Or has sunk and has for the moment, stopped sinking. See map at bottom right.

Unlike sinkholes in Florida however, this one has not yet swallowed anyone’s home or business or, in this particular case, anyone’s prized automobile with them in it.

But to make sure that does not happen (getting sunk into the sinkhole as you drive Highway 2 westbound for “down valley” areas such as Index, Gold Bar, Sultan, Monroe etc.) the WSDOT (state transportation dept.) plans to do something about it.

The WSDOT says of this newly discovered sinkhole, part of which is under westbound US 2 at milepost 53, near Skykomish, “We need to fill the hole before it is safe to open US 2 to two lanes of traffic. Plan for alternating traffic overnight/Friday as well as Memorial Day Weekend travel delays.”

So far so good. But what happens if, when the WSDOT work crews go to fill this thing in, it just keeps getting bigger and bigger until it eventually sinks long, deep and hard all the way through the earth until it opens up again in China for example?

Well, then that’s what happens.

Like volcanoes in Hawaii. When they blow they blow and the lava goes where it goes.

There is no negotiating with Mother Nature on these things.
