Packed? Heck unless we get a week of rain, those snow mounds will be
here till Easter!! Some places use front end loaders to take the stuff
out in dump trucks and take it down to the lake and dump it during the
peak snow season. (Wow, what a cool run on sentence.) And we get nothing
compared to Syracuse and Buffalo.
