April nears and we're still melting
We've got flowers, and buds and bugs. The sidewalk tables are set again, and it sure feels like winter is over. But the snows of February (and December) are still with us, here and there, at least where they were plowed and dumped into huge piles.
Here's one of them. The photo was taken Tuesday afternoon out at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, and sent to me Wednesday by alert reader Jonathan Dean. Looks like the snow had been plowed off the adjacent garage. Dean said:
"There are still a couple of large snow piles remaining here at BWI ... including this one behind the airport's hourly garage.
"There's also a pile of ugly, dirty snow remaining on the airfield, on the helipad alongside the general aviation runway 15L-33R. We pushed a large pile of snow there during the storms, and it continues to melt away."
