Still Snow on the Ground in Boston

The unofficial start of summer is behind us, but Boston is still feeling the effects of a brutal winter that dumped record-breaking snow on the city.
The remains of massive snow piles, the dumping grounds for some of the 110.6 inches that fell on the city during winter 2014-2015, are still standing tall. The filthy piles are now a mixture of garbage, debris, and the very last of the winter's snow.
On Wednesday, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh tweeted a photo of the Tide Street Snow Farm, the largest of the city's dumping grounds in South Boston. At the height of the winter, some of the towering snow mountains stood five stories tall.
Now, the dingy piles are a messy shadow of their former selves, but they're unlikely to melt completely until June.
