Unbelievable: Still snow at BWI...
BWI Airport issued the following press release yesterday:
Last of Winter Snow Appears Ready to Finally Melt Away at BWI Marshall Airport
Snow pile behind Airport's Hourly Garage almost gone
The final trace of the record 2009-2010 winter season appears ready to finally melt away at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI Marshall). A large snow pile located behind the Hourly Garage at BWI Marshall Airport will likely completely melt this week.
Keep reading for the rest of the press release and for updates on a couple other snow piles in the region...
"This snow, still remaining here in early May, reminds all of us of the record storms this winter," said Paul J. Wiedefeld, Executive Director of BWI Marshall Airport. "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."
Meteorologists at the National Weather Service report that 77 inches of snow fell at BWI Marshall Airport this past winter. The snow pile that is finally melting away this week originally appeared following the back-to-back February storms that dumped 44.5 inches of snow at the Airport. Snow was pushed off the top of the six-story Hourly Garage, resulting in a large pile.
The BWI snow pile is one of several in the region to last into at least late April. In a PM Update last week, we noted the demise of a long-standing snow pile in Charlottesville, Va. - Mt. Chipotle (officially put to rest on 4/28). Frank Roylance at MarylandWeather.com blogged about a snow pile still standing in Lancaster, Pa. as of May 1. Congrats to those of you who indicated snow piles would stick around after April 15 in our poll back in mid-February.
