So yeah, our April 20 prediction was wrong, though everyone who guessed “June” will likely be wrong, too. But everyone’s a winner when it comes to snow pile predictions!

Speaking of winners, there’s another Marcus Center snow pile we somehow missed the first time around. This one, on the parking structure’s south wall, is doing just fine, thank you:

We’re saying May 4 on this one.
