POTHOLE AND LOCAL NEWS UPDATE



Someone returned the sign to the pothole!

Dirty and crumped, it's a bit worse for the wear; perhaps it had been stuffed into the hole itself.

There are other changes as well....




....Like an oil slick around the hole, as well as some spray-painted writing.




(Does anyone know what "DIE TEST" means? Or "BAB CLR"?)






Dorian Black thinks the new lines and words mean that it's not just a pothole anymore - it's a sink-hole. In other words, there's a much bigger hole below the pavement.

He also thinks they're going to have to shut down the whole street to fix it.

If they fix it.
