Sometimes the guy who orders our plowing orders for the roads to be scraped down to bare dirt again. Normally, they only push off the snow, but this is what happens when they scrape back the hard pack (a bit of snow had fallen again):

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Is it safer? It's more slippery immediately after they do it. Also, these chunks?

I sprained an ankle on one my first year in Alaska. I was Not Amused.

What's the point of scraping it down at all? Why not just let it build up and up and up?

That's what I've been trying to figure out! Maybe so when breakup comes, it's not as messy and we won't have so much standing water?
