It and his vision re done -- in the last two to three years out and it looks like a minefield it does especially from maple. I'm going up north right maple north it is like. Driving on either side by the way they both have not is not relegated to one side. And I've also seen it doesn't seem to really matter. Whether there's a lot of traffic or just a normal amount or little ms. potholes on the on all of it's it's not like because there heavily traveled this is. It's the freeze thaw cycle. As water gets down there. In -- freezes and I am pushes stuff up than it -- and got water.

I don't know if those are Connie Rhodes or not you know Connie Jones when he 400 lane miles of road I learned that from this article buffalo.

The worst and the best some of the roads at the start of the season normally go into being rated fairly good say a seven might be dropped down to a six by the end of the season. Now we have severe troubles upon holes. That would not normally expected be problematic. It's like an epidemic. Out there that's a quote from Stephen McNeal. So lots and lots of -- and quotes and of people going through them it's the kind of thing that. As you're trying to evade some other people are trying to evade them -- just remember that if you cross over in the somebody else's line. And don't pay attention they may -- be paying attention either cross over into yours -- police give you a ticket for doing something like that as. I was wondering now if they would if they would if they had a heart they wouldn't buddy if they call it. Are unsafe lane change and they absolutely could have they wanna do.

It's not that you're trying to drive on safely is just that you would like to get home without having to replace four tires. Or wheels even worse we'll be back or suspension. -- -- a front end alignments exactly. We'll be back Lamar would Beijing company. You're hearing the voice of buffalo WGN.

Can yield to drive has an -- a park near Seneca street. Delaware near Sheridan anti any of the and -- new road in the falls sweet home young Schroeder in several spots. Maine and a between Maine and maple is awful a bit on that a lot that's terrible. Also in their Klein who were early not good. Griner and -- hill in that area to not good. And let's see what that Rick has to say in Akron -- on WB yen. I'm fine Rick what do you think. Well I -- and -- aren't American -- It does appear that considered. I tractor trailer by the way they accurately. -- thousand now retired who. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But anyhow they're inspection and Bert why. America drag and drop or Europe were -- union. And there is -- closer. -- home. I mean you're down -- and entered the debate there but it did nothing but continued. To battle all roads are. If I I've never seen them in such configurations. To and length of lengthwise are solid Millar drove in one about three feet long. And as you just mentioned hardly any road surface left it seems like this year. A not always have the worst but you don't this year I've seen. Less attention paid to them I haven't seen many road crews are trying to do anything what. Well I'll tell you what. In my estimation because I'm a drag -- -- -- and and I ethnic and number one at work record -- or. -- that's it we have these steep street. And you know -- you know -- -- about it talked about to break older -- it's Iraq grow. Is all older and color and it was cold water. At that they expect. Expect that the water and in fact it's one factor and out of Iowa now. I hate to throw like order the book but on detonated by actor. And are now. Retired. -- -- And I got out of the war. Are now. Well that's the problem as as the water leaks down and there and then freezes and pushes that up and hot -- is the way to go but that equipment is expensive but you would think that they do a cost benefit analysis and find out. If it's worth buying more below safe driving view -- -- February march. Old days. When it wasn't quite as bad as it is now with potholes and you would see a -- truck pulled -- to decide -- the flasher is. And you see some guy in back of the dump section with a shovel full. Of patch and he would throw it out into the middle of the street to try and it was some like hit part of a pothole. And then people drove over it would tamp it down with their cars member of the members that do the trigger even that I'm I'm figured this can't last very long. Yeah they stay at a regular drug get a shot you know who could fix the bottles I know where you say mayor Byron. Now we saw that picture of him come in is fabulous Brooks Brothers suit. And his 500 dollar shoes and white block and white gloves. Trying to fill pot hole that was last year -- -- creates -- -- here Biron should get out on the road on the road again we'll Willie Nelson Byron brown filling the bottles of your life. Yeah basis then -- -- the road to bigger shovel Paula just hurled it toward the middle of Apollo was. And then when you ran over it you'd hear it opened your wheel well Egypt. And you know that all of the all of Leo material whatever was there were using was now stuck in your -- a while but it -- wrote. And that's -- and so. This is very strange. I'd probably went thirty years without getting a flat tire okay. In lately in the last three years I've had like five or six flats. Is are -- making means is our technologically more advanced. But really make them more sensitive icing it seems like I'm having more tire problems and I ever did my whole life. Maybe -- is more debris is on the road. Nowadays like I and I -- was not a big gold -- -- -- -- lodged in my time here. Is that Ken Hamilton. As well the last I saw he was on a milk carton he hasn't been here all month. While -- is back and ready to go on I'm sure he's from the falls fabulous and I were counting perspective on that he's enjoying a -- he. Is he having a points -- all points deal with time idea element that that those are courtesy of Tom Barley.

At 6 o'clock we'll kind of gore exactly what so what's available what's gonna happen and it should be interesting and informative and saying that this is my first cruise. -- idea asking many questions itself. -- let's go to. I'll tell you what let's find out of the bottles -- just has better Rochester as they are here -- and Rochester New York on WBM. -- standing here having the same prop -- problems there that we're having in the buffalo. Well traditionally -- would be better off to make English of polish to reach without potholes than the one with them. Is pleased to be -- shorter. Sailor as us I mean it's been the worst nobody can remember a worst season for bottles on this he used to be. -- one here one there but now they're everywhere. There you've taken us from our point of speed to potholes suddenly returned. To let it be. The polish heritage gold but at a much deeper than just pulling ski. General George Washington during a revolutionary war. I hit to -- generals and language that is a good score and Yahoo! which kitten Pulaski. They interrogated and back to West Point both you gentlemen George Washington engaged. Coached at West Point military academy the army well there's been huge plant over the incidents. Commemorating. What you pointed to quote -- fiscal and Pulaski. Asked -- again and Intel I didn't know that until it looked good haven't found other -- go back to the Middle Ages they've by the recede don't you know there is no so are you well you're proud points ski all are on those drove to a big you have one. All I don't know what to get him here and practitioners into -- -- scheme that. We got a lot of attention. You were ahead in the in the points you raise your buffalo I think it's and thank you very much today. He doesn't notify them we're afraid that one Republican pastry closed because they traditionally was where the ones that would the supplies of Pulaski. Today. That we would we would be pointless but no no we do have our supplies Yankee Apollo and you've already -- so far rightly want Chris is at one and I've had one that's shows remarkable. Restraint. The good part about these things as you can freeze. And just remember this. If their frozen you can even Needham girls at that's pretty desperate I eat cookies frozen all the time. And eye candy you know little everyone's solo pieces of chocolate -- can have that frozen. But the bid -- -- appointees either one can be frozen and never quite make it to the -- call today you'd be hard to choose to be hard to explain if you chip that truth on a -- yet on target about. Our Chris you have several FaceBook postings wanted to give us a few see hair let's go from Normandy to nineteen between Hamburg and -- on absolute timer it's supposed to be a highway. Our tax dollars as opposed to go towards improving the -- isn't there something else we can do about it the other join our team has elevated too which probably makes it even worse for temperature variations. And you know what's funny -- -- to nineteen. When they when they build -- it was going down a sprinkle whatever. It was great but -- like anything else that needs upkeep and there isn't a section of fairly new from the through nineteen down. A further -- but it's good road I was on a lot -- many times battling snowstorms what Altria. This is from Jeffrey he says clearly if you hit some of these giant bottles do deserve the damage that occurs it's buffalo there's going to be potholes in the spring to slow down a deal with it. All while off podcasts I -- That's -- -- hard data to you deserve it well first of all the advice of slowdown is good advice. The harder you hit the pot -- a better chance you gonna be shelling out dollars for a new either in new ram or were up our new tire. But we don't deserve that I mean we do our best we would drive slower we're trying to evade them a little bit the problem is -- so many that you can -- them. It's not like there's one here -- his eighth career. Okay and and again it it helps our hand to eye coordination. To see if we huge news this one's I don't hit bad outlining -- over bear. And hope that somebody coming the other way is doing the same thing I'm doing Gallagher hope will -- only to my tires and I'm okay I'll have -- -- -- exactly a good interest thing I'm going to Tripoli Thursday night Beatrice and talk to them see if they've had a lot more calls. I'm doing them trivia Alaska trip and see if they've had a lot more calls on. On busted up -- rims and tires and suspensions and things like that. Let's go to and a silver creek and -- on WV again. Hi sandy hello I'm surprised no one called about the -- goal of state her route 54. Lane. Disaster area. Five that's near Seneca gaming OK I'm home with a. If you're coming from buffalo definitely have to go through that way -- I tell you I call the DOT. And they were all night they gave me the 1800 pound hole number and a cop. Others and there's a pot hole number well I thought I would like to related to goggle -- there's only about 180768. 465. Degree. Or is there 31 a 1807684653. I mean you believing. Give me the numbers further word pothole. So I wouldn't know it -- her. Yeah that's what I was wondering if it's fell flat tire upon all or no air or some lucky that. Well and you that the tech talk to a very nice and he put. You know they have -- goal of state park road on the list but who knows what's gonna happen I mean they -- -- bad for years but here. Definitely worked. All right I like it down there because -- route 520 aunt Millie is down there may have fabulous good easier around that and that. They they do but I just I feel bad for any campers that are going to be coming out during the summer. Or you know beach people. That's of that is a you have well traveled road to -- five have been on of the gazillion times and that's on route five -- ever knows that park I got a thank thank you very much alive -- -- I'm pot hole there is an 800 -- model number. Now I wonder when you call them. You think it's like not a war room where they put a pin in a map. As though that's where that pothole as how precise going to be but it's 1800. 7684653. As 1807684653. That's a pothole reporting number. It used to be that if you reported one is because it was rare. And you wanted to alert other. Other -- motorists look out because as a bottle here. Now there's so many how could you possibly we're doing our best look at the -- we have just in the short time we've been doing this. The hall of shame includes Hopkins. I feel good drive -- mobile park near Seneca street Delaware near Sheridan. North tunnel onto a new road in the falls sweet home -- -- vote between made between -- incline and maple and a main.
