LJ is just passing through, on the way to Myanmar, so I'll just stick this up.
In a normal year, the NJ Dept. of Transportation says it fills 160,000 potholes. In the past five months alone, it's filled 100,000 -- and there've got to be another 100,000 out there. Quite a few of them are on one of the roads approaching my house, to which my post title refers -- getting here now resembles training for one of those new Winter Olympics sports.
Talk about road conditions where you are, or whatever.
