Did you see the video on the news, a big sink hole in Texas and it's getting bigger. Seems there use to be oil in that hole, something else for us to worry about. What's your thoughts? I think were all going to hell and we dug the holes to get there.

The Earth is a living, dynamic thing. She doesn't follow our rules that we attempt to set out for her, so every once in a while, she decides to tell us just who is boss. Lately, we are having more Earth changes than usual. * There may have been oil in the hole you speak of. There is also the matter that the people of the USA are draining the underground water supply or aquifers faster than they are being recharged by rain. Some are not replaceable. That water holds the upper land up from sinking into the pits. * What happens when you dig a hole out of an ├ęclair that is too thin? You get a cave in. Texas is caving in like a pastry that has been cleaned out in the middle.

Thank you for responding, yes it does seem that Texas is turning into a giant crater or Craterville U.S.A. So sad to think that we would drain the resources the way we have and not think about the consequences, soon we will face devastation. Thanks, again Karen

Possibly, but that isn't the only reason for the possible cratering of that area. Earth is dynamic, and doesn't always pay much attention to who or what is living where when she decides to move things about. She may just be in a mood to move contentments about. Be a shaking holy pain for us living on her crust however!

FYI. It has to do with the salt dissolving. Just in case you haven't heard, there was discussion about storing some kind of toxic waste encased in the salt. What do you think would have happened if it had been stored there?

Thank you for responding, and no I did not hear about storing toxic waste. It is bad enough that we have created empty pocket areas that can sink anytime, only we would think of filling them up with waste. Thanks, again Karen
