Yes, I admit, it's an intermittent pond, but it's there more often than it's not. And when it's not there, well, it's often mud or caked dirt. The point is, I usually go around it or slowly slog my way through it. Last week when I rode to work I found something akin to a lake. It was too deep to ride through, even if it hadn't been covered with a thin layer of ice. The pond is so big, and is there so often, it can be seen from space. Okay, you can see it on Google Maps if you zoom in. But that's from space!
