No, this is not about the well-known ice cream, I'm afraid. Just a little rant. The period from June to October is punctuated by potholes, it seems. This year seems to be particularly bad in my neck of the woods, with a serious amount of road work going on. A tiny amount of the work is road resurfacing, but most of it seems to consist of digging great big holes and crevasses for my poor little car to fall down in. In my immediate area, they are doing extensive work on storm drains and water mains. Most of the roads in the town have been destroyed, with temporary patches that function more like ditches. Many roads are closed, with ludicrously-designed detours taking giant trucks into quiet residential areas.
