Giant mounds of plowed snow are still melting, revealing tons of trash.

Boston was absolutely hammered by blizzards this past winter, receiving over 110 inches of accumulated snowfall. Removing all that snow from the roads was, to use a local phrase, a wicked pisser. Mounds of plowed snow reached 75 feet in height. Now that the weather has turned for the warmer, the snow is taking it's sweet time to melt.

The Boston Department of Public Works has noticed the slow melt, and crews are placing bets on when the snow will actually disappear for good. “I said by May 30, but that's this weekend," offers DPW commissioner Michael Dennehy. “It's still weeks away from melting."
