Boston's Monstrous Snow-Trash Pile Finally Melted
Winter officially ended months ago, but Boston's massive frozen mountain of snow and trash still hadn't died until Tuesday morning. It's mid-July, BTW.
At its peak in February, the enormous mixture of snow, garbage, and other disgusting debris -- possibly urban yetis -- swept up by snowplows towered as high as 70ft tall at Tide Street Snow Farm. And even after warmer weather arrived with spring and early summer, the trash-flavored iceberg stuck around -- prompting Mayor Marty Walsh to launch a contest for who could accurately guess the day it would melt. Walsh announced on Twitter that day has finally arrived:
Now, it appears all that remains at the site is wet garbage.
However, while the demise of the snow pile monster is a victory for all summer-loving Bostonians, it actually might not be the last of the snow. According to a Facebook post from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, the snow is still winning.
The official start of winter is only five months away. It's almost as if it never left.
