Snow pile surviving summer heat in Appleton

APPLETON, Wis. - Even after seven days with temperatures in the 90's this summer, the snow from the storm of the century is still "hanging on!

Appleton got 21 inches of snow during that mid-April blizzard. J.P. Heim has been documenting the slow melting of that massive snow pile in a downtown parking ramp on his way to work.    

"At the end of the day, it's just more the novelty of it. I'm not any sort of weather guru or anything. It's more just seeing something and say, 'Hey that looks cool,' and then throwing it out there and seeing everybody else kind of have fun with it," he explained.

Heim's photos are capturing attention across the country on social media. Even the Weather Channel is re-tweeting them.
