For the non Minnesotans, it may be interesting to know that part of the infrastructure in MN includes creating places to put snow in the winter. Giant piles of snow build up in years of especially heavy snow fall. Sometimes the enormous piles take until June to melt.

This year has been lots of snow followed by warm, followed by snow, followed by warm... ad nauseam, so not many piles lasted long. The dirt that's in the snow is pretty concentrated, and that's a thing to see all of a season's worth of filth collected in one spot.

It's going to be close to 80F / 25C today, so most of it will be gone. I'm sure that there are bigger snow piles down under the freeway near downtown, but here is the last of one of this year's pile, taken with a phone camera.
