Snowbank in snow city Minneapolis. Dan Olson, Minnesota Public Radio

(Minneapolis -- Dan Olson, Minnesota Public Radio)  Where's the rest of the car?  Buried under a nearby snowbank near this Interstate 35 and Washington Avenue intersection here in Minneapolis?

Probably not.

Our "processed" snow here has been bladed and pushed into rock-like snowbanks, winter time reefs that just like the maritime hazards can shear off otherwise necessary portions of our vehicles.

Greetings from snow-blasted Minnesota!
