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.

No big deal, after all, the sidewalks on Knox street are still not clear. I was forced to,walk out in the street.
