PHOTOS: RFK parking lot covered by massive snow mountains

- The snow that is being removed from the streets of D.C. continues to pile up in the parking lots of RFK Stadium, covering the fields of asphalt with mountains of snow and ice – some over 12 feet high.

The stadium lots have been used as a snow dumping ground since the storm stopped over the weekend.

Around the city, the process works like this: Small front-end loaders and plows make their way through side-streets, pushing the snow to main roads. Larger loaders gather the snow together into piles and then those piles are loaded into large haul dump trucks. The large haulers make their way to the stadium lots and unload the snow – creating the massive piles.

Snow melters are also being used at the dump site. One melter, on loan from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, can melt up to 80 tons of snow an hour.
