A Good Reason Not to Live in a Small Town

Highway 6 in central-ish Utah has a massive crater in it. Wow.

My parents live in Price, Utah. The only way to get from Price to the nearest major city, Salt Lake City (hey, it's all relative) is through highway 6. That means my parents are effectively stranded in small-town Utah.

On the plus side, given the nature of your typical southern Utah town, they at least have access to plenty of ammunition.

I've driven that highway a hundred times. It's a really dangerous stretch of road. But gigantic craters are a new one.
