Local Pothole

leave a comment »

Three days ago when I took this short clip, that pothole was almost getting big enough to show up on the next update of those satellite pics of our local streets. This afternoon, it was “fixed.” As seems typical around here, filled in poorly enough to pretty much guarantee that traffic will have to swerve dangerously around the crater once again within a month.

The snapshot to the right is Google Street View’s image for the same spot on the road, that pic obviously taken earlier, but probably by no more than 6-8 weeks.

[Irrelevant Side Note: Not until this ultra-brief video did it occur to me that when YouTube posts a video I’ve uploaded, their reviewers choose a representative frame from that video to act as the “teaser.” I know – duh me. I’m slow in that department.]
