It's that time again!! It's been 2 years since we repaired our road at home and the potholes have appeared and are pretty large this time. So the able-bodied neighbors got together for a long, tiring workday.
Same drill, get a load of "tar" from the local asphalt plant.
NCDOT had recently repaved our "main road" - in the process they added gravel on top of our existing road surface to level it up, I suppose. We spent the first hour or so removing that hard-packed gravel.
Then we really got started with the repairs. Spray some tar down, add small gravel, repeat.
Not hard work at this point because there's a nice overcast sky.
Moving up the road as we made repairs. The sun was starting to bleed thru mid-day. It got warm! Much water was consumed!
Lots of teamwork - we got quite a rhythm going.
And so it went all day. Finally finished up around 7 pm. I bet everyone slept well!! I know I did.
