Thomas MacMillan Photo Nearly three weeks after he pummeled the city, Nemo’s bones lie piled up off Route 34, melting alternately in sun and rain.

Earlier this month, Winter Storm Nemo delivered a historic 34 inches of snow to the city. For the following week, city staff and private contractors labored to move that snow off city streets. They piled it at several locations around the city, including in Westville at the corner of Yale and Derby avenues, where these photos were taken.

A driveway spirals between snowbanks more than 20 feet high, leading into an alien terrain made of staggering amounts of ice, snow, and dirt. The landscape appears alternately lunar and Himalayan, with strange formations emerging as the Nemo melts away.






Sometimes the snow seems to go on forever…
