tough day for the family roadster

Have you been fighting those terrible potholes that always erupt after a harsh winter? Well, I hope what you encounter isn't nearly as bad as this! What you're looking at is actually a sinkhole that appeared today after a water-main break on a city street in Chicago. It swallowed a minivan. Poor little minivan.

Just had to share the picture. Here's a link to the article.

Wow! Looks like we got out of Chicago just in the nick of time! I thought we had it bad with the Lincoln Park pirates and the parking ticket ninjas! Now you gotta watch out for sink holes that will eat your car! Crazy.

It has been the Winter of pothole olympics around the Chicago area.
driving anywhere you meet the dreaded pothole. I don't remember ever a Winter with the streets as bad as they are this year.

I saw that this morning on WGN. Honestly, it seems like the potholes (soon to be sink holes) are even more out of control this year! Crazy!
