Maryland snow pile, too, in its last days
Lancaster, Pa. is not the only place in the region with a dwindling remnant of the back-to-back blizzards of 2010.
Officials at the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport say the huge snow pile alongside the hourly garage has not yet melted completely away. But it does appear to be in its final days. It was 80 degrees at BWI this afternoon.
"This snow, still remaining here in early May, reminds all of us of the record storms this winter," said Paul J. Wiedefeld, the airport's executive director, in his eulogy for the 77 inches that fell there this past winter.
"I want to again acknowledge and thank the snow team employees at BWI Marshall who worked extremely long hours this winter to clear snow for airport customers. It was a winter that none of us will soon forget."
Here's how the snow pile looked on March 4:
