With all the snow and snow plowing from the storm of the century (of the month) Baltimore streets have been left looking like the surface of the moon.
When we had walls of snow on the streets we had to manuver carefully because the streets were so narrow and side-swiping someone was possible. Now when we drive we're swerving all over the place because of the crater slolem that we play on our daily commute. Someone's gonna get smashed by someone else who's trying to dodge the upcoming potholes in the street.
Last week my commute took me up out of Hampden up Roland Ave and it was pretty nasty. This week I've been deployed to Essex and my eastwardly evacuation is much longer with potholes everywhere. And I mean er'war!
Ironic? My only smooth sailing is down Erdman Ave. because it was recently repaved last year. What used to be one of the worst spots on my drive is now smooth sailing. But the rest of the way is like playing Moon Patrol.
Watch out if your driving eastbound on 33rd between Guilford and Barclay. There's a T-shaped canyon that takes up nearly 2 lanes. I found that out the hard way.
Where else are you seeing massive pock marks in the city?
- Clifton Park cut through at 33rd and Harford has always been bad but now it's worse.
- The Avenue eastbound in Hampden has a deep one right before you get to Cafe Hon. Ouch.
I can just hear the city now. Throwing a fit come springtime over all the potholes.
Where's our Fed. disaster relief $$? Hope we get it in time to dump that cash into those holes. And why not? Aren't we just gonna dump it into some black hole anyway?
