There are less than two weeks left in February, and spring will be here before you know it. When spring arrives in Western New York, there are certain things you think of: cleaning, melting snow, outdoor activities returning, and yes, fixing potholes.

It's become a running joke in Western New York. The countless potholes that litter the roads from the City of Buffalo to the suburbs. I've seen some pretty bad ones in Niagara Falls, as well as Hamburg and Angola.

The City of Buffalo had a giant, deep pothole next to the Allpro lot near the Rand Building, where I work, and the people who work down there know where it lies, and always to avoid it every day.

We should start to see crews fixing potholes in the next few weeks, and two towns are getting a head start on that.

According to the Erie County Department of Public Works tweeted out on Wednesday that crews would be out and about, patching potholes in the towns of Elma and Marilla.

Elma has some pretty bad potholes if I remember. Those old country roads usually take a beating in the winter, especially these towns east and south of Buffalo, who get more snowfall than the city and areas north.

We've had a brutally cold and snowy winter, so we should see a whole lot of potholes being patched in March and April.

Be on the lookout for crews fixing those road hazards.
