When it comes to being “frozen” in Wisconsin, sometimes it seems that we just can’t “let it go.”
That was the case with a pile of snow left over from April’s big storm.
City spokesman Chad Doran says the pile was in an area of the Yellow Ramp, along N. Morrison Street, that’s designed as a storage place for snow when crews plow it from the top of the ramp. It’s in a shaded area, so it took longer to melt. Doran says the big blizzard in April was a factor too.
The snow saga came to an end on July 9.
Yes this is the Yellow Parking Ramp in #Appleton. Yes this is STILL snow on July 2nd. Yes, we may have to ask @AppletonPD_WI to start directing traffic around there if it lasts much longer. @FoxCitiesWi when does this become a tourist attraction?

Sad news to report friends. The snow pile that was hanging around in the Yellow Ramp, is now gone. July 9th has to be some sort of record though isn't it?— City of Appleton (@cityofappleton) July 9, 2018
But for those who will miss it, don't be sad. It could easily be back in like four months! #snowgone #gonebutnotforgotten pic.twitter.com/Ak8lQoBSZW
