Boston's last pile of snow didn't melt until Tuesday ... and it's July
Debris covers a lingering snow pile, amassed during the record-setting winter, Thursday, May 28, 2015, the Seaport District in Boston. A 75-foot-high snow mound in the Seaport District has been reduced to a three-story pile of dirt and trash, including bicycles, traffic cones and even half a $5 bill, that remains encrusted in solid ice. Crews have been working for six weeks to clean away the trash as it breaks free from the mound. So far, they have pulled 85 tons of debris from the pile. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)
