Roadscapes Wednesday: Great Snow Wall In Japan

Roadscapes Geek Alabama

Once again today, the south is dealing with another winter storm.  Everything from ice, sleet, freezing rain, and snow has caused problems across the southeast from Louisiana to The Carolina’s.  So, since we are stuck in our homes and watching snow and ice accumulate outside, I thought I would share this amazing snow sculpture you see in Japan each year.  This road is located in Tateyama, Japan, and each April, cars with snow removal equipment use GPS to dig the road out and are accurate within of a centimeter.  The snow wall is usually 10-15 meters high, and when the road first opens, it causes people to flock to this amazing sight!

Here are a few videos showing you how they clear the snow off of this road and the amazing snow canyon, this is cool stuff!
