Snow clings on at BWI

Despite temperatures in the 80s recently, snow from February's record snowstorms has been hanging on in at least one locale in the Washington region: Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

A snow pile behind the hourly garage has been slowly disappearing. According to the National Weather Service, 77 inches of snow fell at BWI this winter. The snow pile is left over from the February storms that dumped 44.5 inches of snow at the airport. Much of the snow was pushed from the top level of the six-story garage, airport officials said.

"This snow, still remaining here in early May, reminds all of us of the record storms this winter," said Paul J. Wiedefeld, BWI's executive director, who thanked the airport's snow crews for the long hours they worked to clear snow. "It was a winter that none of us will soon forget."

The last of the notorious "Mount Chipotle" in Charlottesville (do a Google search for that name) was trucked away last week. I hear there is still some snow out at WT Woodson High in Fairfax.
