Winnipeg has a problem that just won't go away.

A giant, 60-foot snow pile that refuses to melt.

Every winter, Winnipeg's street maintenance team goes out and collects excessive build ups of snow from parking lots across the city. Usually, the mountains deplete in time for the following winter season, but this year, there's a chance it might not.

People in Winnipeg have noticed the mountain, tweeting out their disbelief –and possible pride- for the giant eyesore that has taken up residency.

 

If the mountain doesn’t melt in time for winter, Winnipeg’s city officials may have to go in and start manually melting it themselves.

That’s...kind of the perfect job.
