I couldn’t resist checking in with the Lakeland Ledger (Fla.) this morning to see what the latest news would be on Scott Lake, the lake that started sinking last week. “The Lake is Dry” was the headline. Evidently, there are four sinkholes, not one. And, it took, “…nearly 10 days for the 285-acre lake, which is ringed with (homes of) the Who’s Who of Lakeland’s best known businessmen and executives, to drain.”
Miraculously, only one home received severe damage, but the aftermath for this weird twist of nature is lots of muck, stench from rotting fish, stranded boats, and gawkers galore. It’ll be interesting to watch whether the lake revitalizes itself or the residents take action to fix it. We’ll stay tuned.
