Moving and grooving

It’s that time of year again folks. What time you ask, there are lots of those “that time of the year”s you could be referring to? After a winter like this last one, I am sure you are familiar with following description.

You’re like a race car on the track before the race. You are getting your motor warmed up and you weave back and forth quickly, getting the tires warm too. You haven’t seen the green flag to start the race yet, but you are hoping eventually to get one and all these people will get left in the dust as you speed away.

Ok, so hopefully that painted a relatively vivid picture for you. Now, imagine you are that car, weaving back and forth…

…around potholes.

After a winter like the last one, the dang roadway is filled with potholes. I swear I have to weave back and forth like that race car sometimes. It’s ridiculous that you have to weave so much while doing 75mph on the highway. The roads up here in the NW are full of potholes.

My car is in gonna crack an axle or for certain I am gonna need an alignment after this spring driving.

What out for those potholes, folks! There are a few that might even swallow a small car.


How are the roads looking in your neck of the woods? I guess this is really for the readers in the northern states, since the southern states just don’t have the severe winter weather like the north.

    True, we don’t have a lot of snow or ice here in Arizona, but we did have a wetter than normal February that has opened up the weak spots on road surfaces. I’ve driven the freeway between Phoenix and Tucson twice in the past month, and it was difficult avoiding all the potholes.

      Good point. Water does do it as well, just the freezing part speeds up the process. I think I may need to invest in a Humvee (like a real one, not a GM knockoff) to I can drive right through those things without feeling them. LOL
