THEY'RE PATCHING POTHOLES AT THE GATEWAY MALL PARKING LOT!!!

This project looked like it was just getting underway this week. I'm not certain if someone is working on patching the entire parking lot. I didn't take these pictures myself, and I'm sure the photographer didn't want to push their luck checking out the rest of the lot..

I experienced these holes from hell early this summer.

Me and my girl Brenda rolled into the parking lot. She was driving at the time because I'm a scaredy cat.  As we approached one of the bottomless pits, the only way to avoid it was to drive through a pit with an actual bottom.  We could have backed up, but a huge pothole had somehow just formed behind us.

The plane you see is flying over China. Yup the hole goes to the other side of the earth

So to see there is progress happening is very encouraging...but a quick Facebook search finds my friends traveling through the long storied history of the parking lot. Don't sue me if I'm not exposing who you are.  Get ahold of me and I'll write another story all about you. Seriously, I probably would.

Forced to drive past Gateway Mall tonight and encountered two potholes the size of moon craters. If not for Audi all wheel drive not certain I would have emerged from them. There ought to be a law

Umm, I've been alive for 41 years-driving since I was 15. And I've NEVER drove through Gateways parking lot without fearing I was going to sink to my death in a pothole or rip the undercarriage of my vehicle. I'd hardly say the buses are responsible for this!

So can we be hopeful that these patches will stick?

Through the summer?
