ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Bulldozer crews were on the clock on Independence Day, trying to break down mountains of snow, which still tower over some parts of Anchorage, Alaska after a winter of record snowfall.
At American Landscaping crews "roll" the surface of their pile every day or so, scraping off a top layer of gravel, which can insulate the snow, slowing its melt.
"I don't know how high it is now, looks like about 80 feet," said Glenn Ball, owner of American Landscaping, as he looked up at what he estimated to be about 280,000 cubic yards of leftovers.
Ball made good money off the snow dump after Anchorage broke its annual snowfall record of 132.6 inches.
...Cloudy skies and temperatures in the 50s mean it could be at least a few more months before the pile disappears.
"We'll be lucky if it's gone by October or November," he said.
Ball is paying three bulldozer operators to work on his snow pile.
