We are fairly certain that this is the last remaining pile of snow in Minnesota. It’s in the Sears parking lot in Saint Paul, where it continues a slow melting process which reveals the flotsam of our long winter.
The glacier is still about four feet high and about 30 feet long. At its present pace, it will probably be gone by the time more snow is dumped on the spot.
Is it the last one in Minnesota? You tell us. If you find one — rumor has it the 3M campus has one tucked away in the corner of a parking lot — send us a picture and we’ll see which pile carries the distinction of longest-lasting.
