Pothole Watch

After a winter like this (and I'm not sure it's over yet), the roads get sloppy -- and not just in an "ice is melting" kind of way -- more like a "who tried to eat the road and spit it out?" kind of way.  Asphalt gravel litters the ground whe

Recently I discovered a pothole that almost ate my car: eastbound on Bay Road in Amherst, just across from the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, there is a pothole that is nearly the width of the lane and twice as deep (just kidding on the deep part, but it is significantly sharp and deep). On the same stretch of road, on both sides there are multiple holes and jags and crumbling asphalt.

Do you have a pothole that you drive out of your way to avoid, a car eater or a tire smasher?  Add a comment below and let people know where it is.

Sunset in Amherst -- full of tire-popping potholes.

Amherst: Southeast Street between Main St. and Route 9 is literally impassable -- but not, of course, closed down, because this is Amherst and they are proud of their dysfunctional ways.
