I would tend to agree with the statement that Potholes is replacing Chuckholes in the NW. Jeff Allen -------------------------------- 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.
