Burst Pipe and Flooding in Nathaniel Rochester Hall at Rochester Institute of Technology, April 27

A maintenance worker climbs out of the wall on floor 8 of NRH where the bust pipe happened.

Maintenance workers on NRH 8 examine damage caused by the burst pipe.

Maintenance workers walk from lit areas of the RIT tunnels under Sol Heuman Hall to areas where power was cut under Nathaniel Rochester Hall.

Water reached the basement of NRH, 9 floors below the original damage.

Emergency strobes briefly light the otherwise pitch black tunnels between NRH and Sol as maintenance workers attempt to get rid of flooding.

"Spring" Break - the trip, and family

These two trucks scared the hell out of me. From a distance, it looked like the one being towed was actually driving the wrong way on the highway, and headed right towards me.
