Dodging the Roadkill: Weathering the Winter

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The winter months have always been my least favorite time of the year.  Obviously when I was a kid, I loved the snow and all that came with it, but as an adult, a biker, and a man who has a few “achy” bones, winter is NOT fun for me.

One of the greatest things about this blog and all of you who follow, is that I get to learn so much about you and the part of the country that you live in.  I’ve never been so blessed by anything in my life as I have with this motorcycle and the people and places it brings me.

Tennessee Department of Transportation reminds Tennesseans “It’s Pothole Season”

 

TDOT working to Repair Damaged Areas

Tennessee Department of Transportation - TDOTNashville, TN – Winter weather extremes lead to an increase in potholes on state highways and bridges.  Potholes form when moisture seeps into cracks in the pavement, then freezes and thaws causing the cracks to expand.  The constant pounding of traffic loosens the pavement which causes it to crumble, creating potholes.

Severe swings in temperature followed by periods of rain are the perfect conditions for widespread potholes to form.

Extreme cold followed by warm weather and rain is perfect recipe for potholes
