This is my limited understanding of the weather network.
Pavement is not life optimized. So what can the sun do?. What parameters do the weather network have that can affect the pavement.
I guess its increases the heat. To create cracks.
Together with the rain it has now created a simple birdbath.
This is what I mean. Things are the way they are since nature needs to optimize for life. Or life would not exist.
So one idea to hold down the temperature on the pavement over time would be for us humans to optimize the surrounding for life. Why not a close by bird bath?
