We’ve had two weeks of very large and rapid temperature swings: 7 Celsius one day, -12 Celsius the next. The toll on already iffy road surfaces which have withstood one of the coldest winters in a while has been terrible. See exhibit A:

This particular hole emerged over the past week on a quiet and less heavily traveled road.

I would actually love to see this street restored to its bricked glory. But in the meantime I’d love to see potholes filled.
