My trip to a real hole

A week ago, a big, powerful storm blew through the GTA. One of its little effects was to tear a hole right across Finch Avenue in the west end of North York, between Jane and Keele Streets.

I've seen some photos of this, but I thought I'd go out there and see for myself. I set out about 1 in the afternoon. Funny how a ten-yard gap can complicate things... took me most of 20 minutes just to get to the far side to photograph it from the west as well. Here are a few shots to show you what it looks like a week later (projections are it'll be winter before the road is contiguous again)...
