Patching Pot Holes

Asphalt only appears solid; it’s really in a constant state of viscosity. Wasn’t this repaved less than a year ago? Well, caught our city workers patching it up again. Pothole season. The more snow, the more potholes. Water seeps through tiny fissures in the asphalt, when the water expands when it freezes, widening the crevices into gaps. Something like that. Read it on the Internet so it must be true. The hazard has been averted but aren’t all aversions temporary? Sorry these pictures are blurry. It’s a never ending job, asphalt upkeep.
