"But wait, there's more," he says to the collective groans of everyone who has read this far. I have some additional suggestions for when another massive snow pile (because, of course) is once again situated in the middle of one of the District's premier and vital pieces of separated bike infrastructure. So, in no particular order, please find below my very serious suggestions for best uses for future massive snow piles:
In conclusion, I look forward to spring. I look forward to reminiscing about the massive snow pile in the middle of the Pennsylvania Avenue cycletrack every time I open my freezer or they release another Ice Age movie. I look forward to sincerely believing that the "powers that be" (whoever they are) have learned their lesson and won't repeat the mistake of allowing problems like this to linger. I look forward to being able to ride my bike to work without thinking about the travails of the Donner Party. And while I recognize that this massive snow pile was constructed to keep White Walkers away from our elected officials, I hope that we can, in the future, find a way to do so without imperiling bicyclists and inhibiting their access to bike facilities that were built for year-round use.
