Exclamation watch out for this pothole

not sure if this is the most appropriate sub-forum to list this in, but anyways:

i was riding in some parts of NE the other day that i hadn't ridden in before.
i came across one BEAST of a pothole that i thought i should warn you all about.
though i'm sure its been around for a while, and some of you are probably already aware.
this is for those who haven't seen it yet:

its on NE Klickitat between 33rd and 35th. (west bound side, closer to 33rd).
i've seen some doozies in my day, but this one is SCARY!

this cavern...i mean pothole is especially dangerous because its at the bottom of a large hill...and its pretty easy to come up on it quickly.
i didn't measure it. but if i put my foot in there, i wouldn't be surprised if i would be knee-deep.
the slab of concrete was just collapsing in that one spot (maybe about 2' x 2' ?), so much so that you could see beneath all the layers of the road.
i seriously expected the goonies to be crawling out that that thing.
that or maybe thats where they filmed "land of the lost."

i left a report on 823-BUMP, but if any of you want to do the same thing...that would be good. if anyone hits that coming down the hill, not only are they gonna need a new bike, but some reconstructive surgery as well.
i understand the city may be backed up with requests...and this one may not be very high on their list of priorities (NE Klickitat between 33rd and 35th is not a thru street for cars, just bikes).

either way, keep an eye out for it until it gets fixed
