2. So do we;

perhaps even more so, east of the mountains. Of course, the huge temperature ranges over here, and the regular hard winter freezes and hot summer temps, keep road workers busy every year. They don't usually start until spring, and we are using detours in multiple areas all summer long. Where I live, residents are responsible for maintaining the county dirt road that takes us to the nearest paved, publicly maintained road, and it was nearly impassible for a few weeks when the snow started melting; my neighbor keeps it plowed, but once all the snow was gone we had a true mess...two miles of ditches, ruts, giant potholes, mud...we've used up all the gravel we bought for the year, which has made it better, but it's still not good.

I drove over the pass, round trip, into Portland (the 26) last week; while I didn't drive around Portland itself once I got to where I was staying, I can say that the 26 was terrible, and the ruts and holes made the rain, fog, and snow worse.
