I have never heard of 'chuck hole'. For me it's a pothole. My wife,
also an Oregonian, said that she's heard chuck hole, but from only her
parents-- no one her age would say chuck hole. Maybe pot hole has
replaced chuck hole in Orygun.

In Eastern Mass a frappe is not runny; a milkshake is. In Western Mass, a
milkshake is thick like a frappe.
