The storm this past weekend left the Capital Region with anywhere from 12 - 20" of snow (or more in some places). With that snow has left massive snow piles, pretty much everywhere. But the biggest snow piles of all can be found in parking lots. And the parking lot here at Wild Country 999 / iHeartMedia are no stranger to massive snow piles.
When I left the office yesterday to run an errand, I admired the giant snow pile & thought to myself... that would be fun to climb up! I snapped a picture & sent it to my co-worker & said "this has FB Live written all over it". Lucky for me, his response was... "sledding?"
I mean... who else can say that they took an afternoon break at work to go sleigh riding?! We did learn a few things however...
- It's not as easy to climb up that hill as when we were kids.
- It hurts a bit more when you hit the pavement.
- We definitely gave our health insurance a thought from the top of the hill. Ha!
In all seriousness though, be extremely careful if you do this. We've all heard stories about snow piles & tunnels collapsing & people getting trapped. That definitely doesn't make for a fun time. And if the plows are still out working, stay completely away from the piles. They may not see you while they're working. Sleigh riding is supposed to be fun, so keep it that way!
