Drain that pit

While I was busy at the convention I missed this Bob Kelleher MPR story on the Canisteo Pit by Bovey from last Friday. The mine pit waters in the Canisteo have been steadily rising since mining ended there decades ago and the water is now starting to flood Bovey. If the pit wall fails, parts of the town could be lost. Needless to say, a lot of people are going to be very happy when the DNR and local mine planning board figure out their differences. Between this and my experiences at the convention last weekend I am about to flood my metaphor pit for the future novel. It’s too bad the part of me that writes fiction and the part of me that blogs can’t agree on how to drain that pit. That being the metaphor pit. We should also drain the real pit, too.
