The City of UP is in the process of repaving my alley. It all started about two months ago or so when they updated the gas meters. Heck, it could have been last month — I can’t remember — but ever since the update, they have been repaving. They pave a section behind one house at one end of the alley. Then about five days later, they’ll pave another section behind another house at the other end. And so it goes back and forth.
This morning I was alley-chatting with a nice, dog-walking couple and I asked why. Why not take a week or two and pave the whole thing at once, or at least half one week and half the other? They didn’t have a clue either, so I’m putting the question to the masses: what is the method to this madness?
