Some fun...

Mid morning a water main feeding a fire hydrant at the corner of Market and Talcott Streets -- right outside our offices -- broke, sending a flood of water and literally tons of dirt, rocks, and broken masonry into the street. At lunch DPW had gotten Market St. cleaned up, and MDC was just starting to poke at the cavern under the collapsed road and sidewalk.

Market & Talcott Streets

As of 9:20 tonight, they're still working on repairs. I'm glad my egress from Hartford doesn't rely on Market Street, because this was surely a mess for the evening rush.

BTW, the MHIS Web Cam is here: -- aimed at the ever bustling Market St. ;-)
