Moving mountains of snow
Imagine a football field buried under 142 feet of snow.

They hauled 2,805 loads or 44,880 cubic yards of snow, according to Bryan Bjorgaard, the city's public works director.
While snowflakes were swirling around outside, Bjorgaard delivered his "state of the public works address" to the Alexandria City Council Monday night.
