Boston Pothole Rage

It’s barely two weeks into winter and the potholes are already making a drive around the Back Bay feel like a rugged jungle safari.

Just a few minutes ago, someone using Citizens Connect reported nine within a block on Symphony Road near Northeastern. I dare say that’s not the worst of it, but it’s somehow comforting to think that some people still have the audacity to believe that anything can be done.

But pothole slalom probably makes us better, more reactive drivers, and in the absence of anything else to do with them, we ought to treat them like Rorschach ink blots.

This one looks like Africa.
This one looks like a pig’s head.
This one looks like an owl.
