Given a pseudo-Anosov homeomorphism of a surface S, we can
form a fibered 3 manifold as the mapping torus of the homeomorphism.
Although the manifold admits a hyperbolic structure due to Thurston's
double limit theorem, there is also a natural singular Sol structure
on the manifold. I will discuss how the Sol structure is related to
the pseudo-Anosov homeomorphism, and describe work on recovering
hyperbolic cone structures from the Sol structure.
