Things I don’t know, winter storm watch edition

I somehow haven’t mentioned the very salient fact that 20 inches of snow has fallen in Madison in the last two weeks. The streets are clear by now, but there’s 3-4 feet of snowbank plowed up on every curb. Today I saw a little Bobcat transferring loads of snow into a dumptruck. Question: where is the dumptruck taking the snow? Do you dump snow at the garbage dump? In the lake?

    Usually in the nearest body of water. Small amounts may be shoveled down the street drains.

    In all my life’s experience with high volumes of snow, I have never actually seen any get hauled away. I will have to start watching more closely — we might get 18 inches over the weekend!
