Just some facts:

C. The sinkhole caved in about a week and a half after some sustained low single digit temperatures (0-5 degrees).

I don't know where the drain lines for the pond run.

Here is a GooglEarth snip:

The asterisk marks what I think is the approximate location of the sinkhole inside the dome. It's either where I marked it, or, on the opposite side of the red spire.

Lost River Cave is in the area, also. This a seven mile cave system with a fair sized river running through it.

When the sixth car was brought up, the rescuers (?) were asked about the remaining two cars, of which, at that point, no sight had been seen. One of them replied "They could be in Lost River for all we know."

Cave it in, and they will come.

The museum says if they had bought the airtime they received in news coverage (and free publicity ;)) would have cost $10.5 million.

The cars will be on display, as is, til the end of August, btw.

Around here those retention ponds are require for all major construction projects. They're designed to hold the rain/snow running off all the impermeable surfaces in the project. That's all the roof area, parking lots, and pavement. Once that water is collected it's supposed to be released at a slow enough rate that it won't overwhelm local creeks/brooks flooding people downstream. Some evaporates, some sinks into the soil (although not much because the retention ponds are usually lined), some may be connected to storm water systems(never sewer), but usually they're drain to naturally occurring water courses.

It's where the suburban kids get their ticks nowadays. Because they're not allowed to cross the road, to where the trees are.

This guy can drive a tractor. He must have a gas pedal and not a throttle lever. Either that, or he has a third arm.

This guy is about to do some serious sand-kickin'.

That, friends and neighbors, is a mobile home.

Looks like 100 feet between the front and rear axles.
