The Fabulous Cumberland High School. The construction workers made an oops.

actually the windows only about about 2 inches so it wouldn't of mattered. I was looking out the windows of a room directly getting sprayed and it looked like a hurricane.

I love when these things happen. I was at dinner the othernight and the parking lot had about 6 inches of water. Sorry for the quality, had to take it with a cell phone. I usually don't bring all my equipment to dinner.  Wink

Yes, because they were bulldozing over there and they are building a road.

At least they didn't hit a gas main! That could have been a serious problem. Probably someone didn't or didn't have marked the site properly for possible utility lines. Guess the construction company will have to fix this mess.

I'm a construction worker, primarily contracted out by New York State, and we pay a company to mark out the utility lines like phone, fiber, gas, electric, etc based on maps provided by the utility provider. You can't believe how many times the markings are wrong due to the utility companies maps not being accurate. It's a shame really because when we hit gas lines and telephone lines that service hundreds of people, it makes our company and working crew look bad but it's really not our fault as the maps are faulty... not to mention completely dangerous and I don't like when I'm in a ditch and two feet from me I see pipes that shouldn't be there being hit with a excavator...

This accident was even more spectacular... a half dozen or so vehicles destroyed and they thought for a while they had incinerated the construction workers but I read elsewhere they turned up safe...
