May 1st Snow

Remember the epic lake effect snow that hit Buffalo last November?

That snow is still around. While shopping for groceries in the West Seneca area of greater Buffalo - where the snow fell the deepest - we drove by a very large empty lot that looked to be filled with acres of mulch and rubble. But a closer look revealed that mountain is made of snow:

It's hard to get the scale from a photo, but that pile of snow is roughly twelve feet high and covers well over two acres. The state DOT used every available lot to dump removed snow, and this was one of them.

Even with temps in the 70s, it'll be weeks before it's completely melted.
