The Lonely Snow Pile
The Lone Snow Pile
According to the Connecticut Post, in 2011, the first major snowstorm to hit Connecticut was early January. Since then, there have been several significant days of trying winter weather. There was so much snow that commercial building roofs and home garages began to collapse - causing businesses and homeowners to have to remove the snow from their roofs. This added massive piles to the snow piles that had already accumulated due to plowing.

One more pile
Pictured below is one of the last piles of snow in Meriden, Conn. It looks so lonely, but I'm sure most Connecticut residents aren't upset that we haven't been hit by the latest nor'eastern we were threatened with this week by our local weather man.
I don't know anyone who doesn't want this lonely pile of snow to go away just as much as they wanted all of the other snow to go away.
So, I hope this is our last snow pile for this year. I love all of the seasons, but I am extremely excited for the spring - and for this leftover pile of snow from the roof of a building to finally go away.
