Midcoast lens: Buttermilk crater
This pothole on Buttermilk Lane in Thomaston was big enough to swallow a small vehicle Jan. 14. Even the more than 6 feet of yellow tape could not stay in place due to the whipping winds and rain. The extended hole was filled with water, leaving its depth to the unsuspecting driver.
