I have a story in today’s Monitor about potholes and mud season – pretty typical March stuff for New Hampshire. But I got a surprise while reporting it: The city of Concord counts potholes, and last year at this time they had twice as many as this year – 8,000 compared to 4,000. Here’s the story.
I was surprised because this year strikes me as the worst ever in terms of freeze-thaw cycles and rain or snowmelt at the wrong times. I’ve lived with a dirt driveway for almost 30 years and this is the first year I’ve parked in the street and walked to the house because the driveway was almost undriveable.
