Welcome to Vernon.
We look after our roads here.
Others might consider it a mysterious business, but sometimes we fix many holes at a time.
Our work crews are trained and skilled, and know how to recognize which hole in a strip of a thousand holes is just the lynchpin holding the road together as a road, and they fix it on the spot.
It takes a lot of training. Just being a citizen of town, I’d have thought that the hole below was worthy of attention …
… but it is obviously harmless. It’s a good thing we have experts. Look at the great job they did on Bella Vista Road around the corner.
That’s four layers in one hole! That’s a long-term investment in care. That’s why amateurs should not try to repair a road shoulder on their own, as this guy did on Orchard Hill:
Tsk! Tsk! Let’s hear it for professionalism!

We live on a gravel road that is marked by potholes and washboards, mainly due to the constant rain this summer and the snow/melt/snow cycle early this autumn.
We find the local road crew does about as good a job as one can hope for. They are also helpful: they open up the shoulder for parking spaces at the little country church for the (cancelled this year) Christmas service, etc.
As for potholes in gravel–my back teeth are loose.
Ah, but do they fill in holes in between the holes but leave the big holes and fill in little ones the size of plums? Our team is very gifted.
I think that filling in holes in between the holes is called paving. We don’t have that. 🙂
We don’t, either!
