With steam pipes, electrical doodads, and whatever else might be underground, some streets have warm spots that melt any snow. If one of these warm spots happens to be at a pot hole, really big puddles can form. If, in your travels, you come across one of these puddles, do not park your car next to it. The results can be catastrophic.
A tow truck can't get this unstuck without doing some serious damage. The forecast calls for above freezing temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday, but then another week of freezing weather. This unfortunate driver may be stuck for quite awhile. Bummer.
