Link with 892: Piles

[Every so often the zamboni goes around the ice rink to scrape up chips and shavings of ice formed from all the figure skating and hockey. This faux-snow has to go somewhere and so it is typically dumped out the back door in the snow-covered yard. These piles can get quite large. In April, May, and even June they are usually still melting when all the other snow has disappeared.]

I see it everyday when I walk to my car from work. There's a small rink right where I park.

Now we have a slight hope for a snow again here! It's now only +2 C after the short storm, and forecast says that some snowing is possible here also! Waiting!
