There's still some snow in Wisconsin

APPLETON, Wis. (WLUK) -- It may be the dead of summer, but in one small area of Appleton signs of a long winter can still be seen.

There's still a snow pile inside Appleton's Yellow Ramp. Despite a hot, steamy weekend last weekend, the snow is still staying strong.

One man saw the rare sight, and decided to snap a photo and send it to the City of Appleton's Twitter and a response didn't take long.

"Figured I'd share it with the City of Appleton since this is one of their parking ramps and figured there might be an opportunity to have some fun with it," said JP Heim.

"Just knowing that, even in Wisconsin where we get a lot of snow and it can hang out, you know, a long time. I thought, man, people are going to get a kick out of this," said Chad Doran with the City of Appleton.

Now, the area where the snow pile sits is the dumping spot for snow that collects on the roof. Doran said the snow pile is now like a tourist attraction.
