The city of Portsmouth has been hauling snow from town and dumping it on Peirce Island, just across from the Naval Shipyard. But now, Public Works Director Peter Rice says the island is filling up.
Everything but the road is covered in mountains of snow on Peirce Island. At the very end of the road, a snow pile towers two or three stories high. If you peer over the hill to the park below – you see the pile doubles in size.
“This is unprecedented. We’ve never seen this before, like this. This has been amazing,” Lister revels.
