5 Dec 2011. Next to the Sockeye Inn on the north side of Fireweed between C & D streets, looking west. Anchorage residents may remember that we were on the second or third day of some unseasonably warm weather & partial thawing. The sidewalk was barely walkable here, so long as you weren’t old or disabled — full of lumpy chunks of ice thrown up from the road by snowplows on whatever day that most recent snowfall before December 5 had been. And see that hump of snow beyond the light pole? That’s where snow was pushed to clear the Sockeye Inn’s driveway. There’s no pathway for pedestrians at all there, short of climbing the berm.
