No doubt that potholes are a big problem everywhere. But in Chicago, they are a real nuissance. Every winter potholes in Chicago pop up by the 1000s leaving our streets and roads like war fields. The problem is exemplified in this Youtube clip:

But today, I was exiting a commercial parking lot when I suddenly looked at the ground and so a pothole between the avenue and the entrance of the lot (you must keep an eye on those to protect your tires and rims). To my surprise there were a bunch of pennies inside the pothole  Shocked . I said, no way, those pennies just found an owner  Grin. I parked my truck again and stepped out to pick up 44 pennies  Cool . As seen in the picture (shame on me for not carrying my camera with me), the pennies looked washed meaning that they had been sitting there for a few days. Of course waiting for me to pass by and pick'em up. Passers looked at me like this guy is crazy, but hey, pennies are money and I'd have to dig over 60-80 holes to collect that many pennies. Besides, how many times one will come across a pothole giving you anything but trouble   Angry

There was a photographer in Chicago that was taking pictures of potholes as a form of art. A pothole with 44 cents would've been his masterpiece  Grin
