Cure for the common pothole

Found in Paris, via Flavorpill,  potholes filled up  with knitting.  Got any incomplete gloves or scarves to donate? Might not cure the pothole, but it will be sure to bring delight.

On the bright side, potholes are a sign of spring.

Here’s a sound track to remind you that spring is really here.

the sidewalk app is already here!

Last week I went on a rant about snow shoveling, and made a call for action to crowd source an app to manage the problem.  Well,  as they say, “search, and ye shall find.”  Okay. Seek.   Drumroll.

SeeClickFix is a crowd sourced website and mobile phone app, for the entire country, that calls on the community to participate in good management.

Here’s a screenshot of what happens when you look for St. Paul.

As you can see, reports of potholes, with a variety of descriptions, from “too many to count” to “complete car eater” are listed.

There are also links to report other community issues,  and I did not see anything that precluded reporting snow hazards.

Please check out the site, report your local potholes or other neighborhood blights.  Be part of the solution.   And please report back your user experience.

It’s the Boy’s State Hockey Tournament weekend. Happy Shoveling!
