Most of us are trying to forget the persistent and never-ending winter weather that we experienced this year. It seems that spring has finally arrived. Well, here’s one last reminder of the cold and snowy winter of 2013-14: a lingering snow pile in Reston, Virginia.
I have passed this snow pile for weeks while driving to my favorite Starbucks in Plaza America on Sunset Hills Drive in Reston, Virginia. It’s been shrinking, but it’s still there, slowly melting away in the shade of a parking garage.
I first notice the snow pile in mid-February, after the big snowstorm named Snochi. The pile once stood well over 6 feet tall and one side had to be chiseled flat to allow a pedestrian path to re-open to foot traffic. The snow pile temporarily blocked the path.
Now it’s just a little guy, a baby snow pile. It will probably be gone in a week, but I’ll see if it makes it into May. I’ll try to take a photo when it becomes a mere snowball.
Is this the last snow pile in our area, or do you know of any other lingering snow pile remnants?
