No School Today (crop)Sometime over the long weekend (Monday was a local holiday), the school next to my house had a roofing accident. The roof was renewed only eight years ago, in 2000, but something went wrong. It did rain quite a bit this weekend, but nothing extreme for this climate. We have a particularly good view of the roof from our house, so I thought I’d report on it.

No doubt the kids are delighted to be free for a couple days. Parents, not so much.No School Today

Pretty big gaping hole.

No school today at Colegio Fray Pablo.

  • Yeah, that’s a gaping hole all right.

  • aquariumdrinker

    Don’t have anything to add. Just wanted to do my part to move this up the list of search results for School Kids Gaping Holes

  • I overheard some kids just now saying, “Wouldn’t it be cool if the whole school fell down!?”


    Holes. Gaping.

  • I heard that there was also a hole in the exterior wall of the local brothel. Police are looking into it…

  • what do you mean “a roofing accident”? how the hell do you get a hole in your roof like that? did an elephant sit on it?

  • The word meteor crossed my mind, but I’m guessing the answer is really rotten wooden beams and poor inspection.

  • That roof is only 8 years old and the hole is that big? Definitely faulty construction/building materials must be to blame. Thank goodness nobody was injured or killed.
