Where Does The Snow Go In Minneapolis?Minneapolis is known as the City of Lakes, but lately it's looked more like the city of snow. Lisa McCulloch says the snow piles are in the way of everyone's day-to-day operations. "That's all you see are snow piles. You trudge over them to keep walking on the sidewalks," McCulloch said. "Driving, I'd feel like I can't quite see around that corner or I'm not sure if somebody is coming."
