    Behold the mighty power of the freeze-thaw cycle

    Take 16 inches of snow and add several 50 degree days followed by overnight freezes. Mix well, then when nicely hardened, break roadway into chunks.

    One mile out from work this morning, a stretch of road that was fine yesterday, did this to my rim after following the above recipe. Amazingly, this did not result in a flat and I was able to limp into work. Now I need to find a pair of channel-locks so I can get home...
