    They say a pic is worth a thousand words.

    See the 6 guys? one is the boss, four are placing cones.
    when they are done the 5 of them are going to stand around watching and talking about it for 2 hours while the last one throws 2 shovels of cold patch into it and at the end of the work-day they will call it fixed and be back in 30 days to do it all over again, and that is how Michigan spends all its money on road repair.😉
