    The Kennebec Journal has a picture of a construction work holding a 5 pound snowball he found yesterday at a bridge construction site. It had been protected by "a blanket of bark mulch" from paper mill which had been on the site. Temperatures were at 90 F.


    They might need a snowplow.;)

    On the news last night they had a big pile of firty snow still left in Albany. It had been piled there and the workers were chipping it apart so that it would melt faster.

    Yep, on the news yesterday, the crew at Albany International Airport were doing snow removal. They thought that it was a good day to break down the currently 15 foot big pile of snow into small piles with the payloader. The news has video of them in action and I could see that the snow is really wet and compacted. With that much moisture in the snow pile, I would think that the pile would still be there in August if they did not break it down into smaller piles. Because the more moisture in the snow, the longer it take to melt down.

    The guys there said that they set a record last winter with the biggest pile peaked at 55 feet high!! :eek: That got to be impressive!
