The polar vortex is gone, and thanks to the rain, the snow has been cleared from the streets. But the arrival of welcome warm temperatures also seems to have sparked a bloom of potholes in the Chicago area.

Potholes are perennial, of course, but since the extreme cold subsided at the middle of last week, many have started to appear in Chicago and the suburbs, according to media reports. The spike is tied to the sudden change in conditions from extreme, subzero temperatures to unseasonably warm conditions that have neared 40 degrees. 

Is the same true here in Romeoville? Tell us where you spotted (or drove through) a pothole by listing it in the comment box below so we can warn other drivers and give city road staff a heads up on what needs to be fixed.
