    A general road warning

    Well folks, it looks as if the weather might make a nice improvement over the next week and a half or so. I'm sure most of you realize this remember we've had quite a bad winter with cold temps and snow/ice. With a quick warmup expect bus eating pot holes. Pot holes you could hide a small Asian army in. Pot holes you could stash food in for next winter. Pot holes you could grow your pot in. Anyway you get the idea.

    Great point Sam....... to add to this..... There will tons of piles of salt still on the road. Makes for some very sketchy traction. Just take it easy out there until you get back up to speed.

    On the bright side...... We're actually talking about this!!!

    Need lots of rain to wash the roads clean of the salt. Traction is always sketchy in the early spring. Take it easy out there for the first few weeks.

    You haven't seen pot holes until you drive in Cleveland. We could have been swollen whole in some of them in our 12 passenger van.
