POTHOLES!

POTHOLES!

DON’T blame the County Workers, etc.  To me, that’s a crazy as blaming the clerk at the gas station for the gas prices!!!  There are many factors involved in fixing these teeth chattering holes in the road.  This time of year the weather is a huge factor.  I won’t go in to the science of how they do it because quite frankly I haven’t a clue either.  I do know they’ll get out there I’m sure as quick as they can to put in the hot patch.  Judging by my ride to work every day there is going to be a LOT of repairing due to the brutal winter.  SO…my best suggestion that is coming from observation is to SLOW DOWN first of all.  I see people going 20 miles an hour over the speed limit and they hit a crater and then bitch about the potholes.  Prevention is worth a lot this time of year so do a little more defensive driving not only for some of the “crazies” on the road BUT also for the potholes.  Happy Spring.

I know we’ve heard it many times before but the sacrifices made by many are so worth repeating the real reason. Memorial Day is about remembering those that made the ultimate…read more »
