Snow pile in Mass. hangs on despite extreme heat

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — As temperatures in the Boston area soar into the 90s, a frigid reminder of the region’s long winter clings to life in a Framingham parking lot.

What was once a massive mountain of snow that could support heavy equipment in the winter has shrunk to a dirty pile of ice that this week was still 16 feet long, 8 feet wide and 3 feet high.

Kathy Richov, who is a chemistry teacher at Marlborough High School, tells The MetroWest Daily News that the snow pile could hold on until July. She says a layer of dirt is insulating the snow.

The area got as much as 90 inches of snow this winter.
