Just thought you'd like to see the humungous snow pile that accumulated from a winter's worth of snowplowing left in a special spot in our neighborhood. Actually, the picture below was taken of me by the snow pile last year for a contest with neighbors to see when the giant snow pile would melt. You know... sort of like when will the ice melt on the lake so that the car placed there falls through. (A Minnesota winter contest tradition.) Our snow pile looks the same as it did last year right now and we have a new contest going with our neighbors. Bye-bye white sands of Florida and hello snow piles of Minnesota. Ah...spring!
