...late last night.
Then today, we learned that one of the two bridges going over the Panama Canal has collapsed, due to excessive rain. (The bridge was anchored in a hillside that's been collapsing, due to the land sliding.) We drove over the other bridge, not this one -- but still, it's a shock.
On the flight home to Denver last night, I sat next to a lady who had been on a Panama Canal cruise -- sort of. The ship went into the 'holding' lake, but couldn't keep going through the locks, due to torrential rains.
This was on Thursday. We visited the Canal on Saturday, when it was raining...but working. If we'd taken a cruise, instead of the land trip (we thought about it), we wouldn't have seen much of anything.
Thankfully, no one has been injured or killed.
