Wit's End Update

More slides, no stabilization started. We hear that the Cubans are now to look at it. I believe this will be the fourth group of foreign engineers to visit the landslide; including Canadian, French, Chinese, and now Cuban. It is a veritable United Nations up at our land. Are you familiar with the crass American anacronym SNAFU?

livingdominica: here is the more civilized version for our genteel Brit friends. Situation Normal All Fouled Up.

The underground concept looks more promising every day. Just build it aboveground & let the land surround it. Easy.

that's pretty funny. i know i've seen that acronym before - it's similar to FUBAR - but i bet most folks don't associate a phrase like "we hit a snafu" with its (possible/probable) military origin.

Lukitos: your instant earth sheltered house plan may have promise!

Peter: FUBAR also applies nicely to Wit's End...
