... of the Mercantile Mart! Not a water main then, as had been originally suspected. The emergency crews that then converged on the scene attempted to plug a hole that was now over 6 metres wide with everything from truckloads of rocks to old mattresses.

We hit the road and drove on toward Chicago. The car went over 30,000 miles so we thought it would be a good idea to get the scheduled service (our first "paid" service since the ToyotaCare plan that came with the car ended at 25,000 miles - or two year... Ha! We've had the car only 14 months!). Ruth found a "secret" (she ...
