The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Honey, we're moving

And we don't have to pack anything, either:

A Kansas couple woke up Monday to the sound of falling rocks hitting their windows and quickly realized their apartment was falling into an abandoned mine shaft.

Galena, KS, city officials confirmed occupants were living in an apartment located in the rear of the Green Parrot Bar when it began to fall piece by piece into the sinkhole around 7 a.m.

"When they checked out the noise, they realized the building was falling in," said Meredith Shetley, assistant city clerk.

"Fortunately, there were no injuries," said David Black, Galena Police administrative assistant. "Workers spent the morning shutting off gas and telephone lines."

And I thought I used to live in a dump.

Better a dump than a sinkhole.
