Bobby simply said "How many times have we gone over those bridges in the last two years?". For me? Twice every week day for the last 4 months. Crazy that something like that can just be there under the ground and no one knows until digging for something else. I was completely frustrated as I was leaving work yesterday because I was sitting in a parking lot on Briley and had no idea what was going on. I saw news trucks and figured there was a hazardous spill or something. It wasn't until after Munchkins school fundraiser that I got home and did some digging to find out what was going on. It was unsettling to say the least. Hopefully there is not more.
