Employees of the Eggleston and King Law offices were met with a big surprise when they arrived at work Monday.

Sometime overnight a part of the building crumbled and fell onto U.S. 180, blocking a lane of traffic and forcing the road to be closed.

State Rep. Phil King, R-Weatherford, who offices at the location at 102 Houston Street, said he suspects the recent deluge of rain had something to do with the mishap. North Texas has received more than 8 inches of rain since Thanksgiving, making 2015 the wettest year on record.
