2008… Year Of The Pothole?

Those who have driven through the extremes of heavy snowfall, wet icy roads and at often times, ruthless Chicago winter still have one enemy out there, regardless of rain, sleet, snow or shine.

The potholes around the city and the Chicagoland area have seemingly multiplied like rabbits. And since I’m no Science guy, here’s a link as to how potholes form and become potentially larger. Such as the pothole on the Edens Expressway between Willow and Dundee Roads, which has claimed damage on 8 cars already. Don’t worry, though. It’s been filled.,0,4479776.story

There’s that old Chicago joke about our ‘two’ seasons… Winter and Construction. And there’s still a handful of potholes on Chicago’s highways, as well as countless others on side streets and major thoroughfares, all begging to be filled.

Perhaps we get to add a third season into the joke. Pothole season? Maybe city road workers get to go pothole hunting fitted in Elmer Fudd-like winter caps and galoshes and fill the holes that have plagued the rubbery likes of Goodyear, Bridgestone and Perelli.

You’ve heard of Daley’s ‘Graffiti Blasters’, why not the “Hole Fillers” (innuendoes aside)?

What say you?
