That is normal for us not cleaning the ramps to pavement. The main runways at the Bethel airport are normally cleared to pavement when they can keep up.

You should see the taxiways now after a couple of days of freezing rain and +40 degrees and rain. Water over ice. Some of our village runways are also water over ice. Makes for some sporty landings.

That must up the pucker factor quite well.

Is that body of water still safe to cross? I would be worried since you are driving thru the mud and slush in town.

Nice photos. Mind if I steal them?

I am putting together another video for another piece I wrote called, "Alaska Break-Up Blues." If you have more photos of mud and muck associated with break-up, I will gladly give you credit in the video.
