Dear GYA, It seems like once a week, there's news of a sinkhole devouring someone. I'll be the first to admit that I'm deathly afraid of many things -- rabid koalas, Ebola and, if the circumstances are just right, rabid koalas wielding Ebola. Now, it seems I need to add to my list the probability of being sucked into a damned sinkhole. Anything sinkhole-free happening tonight? - Jessica Hornboggle, Park City
Jessica, These are all things you should be deathly afraid of. In fact, any one of these scenarios is probable in Utah. But, here are a few options for today that should be safe:
