  • There’s a medium sized, but incredibly deep, pothole at Waterman and Gano that absolutely rocks your car. My wife had one of the better quotes of last week after she said, recovering from the pot-hit, “Wow, that felt like we got into an auto-accident with the road.”

    Those Dean shots are amazing… More pot-hole than street indeed…

  • Olney Street is down for the count… Today heading East there was even almost traffic there around noon due to the backed up line of crawling line of cars slowly swerving to avoid the lane-wide craters… I’m not sure this street is drivable anymore…
