I thought I was taking a video of this the other day for my Insta, but my phone hadn't switched from photo to video mode, so by the time I went to post it all I had was a photo of the start and end. :( dammit

They have extended the ramp! It used to just be a short 45 degree ramp from the back of the truck, and they'd worked out how to aim the ice exactly so it would make it's way over the paving to the catcher. If we ever had visitors at Central, we'd always hope the ice truck would be there as it's very entertaining. Also, the auntie right behind the catcher sells drinks, and will put small chairs out for you so you're nice and close to the stacked ice on a hot day.
