Why are the people who were the most excited about the snow two weeks ago the ones complaining loudest about it today? What, about the concept of snow in the city, has fundamentally changed?

Ever wonder what happens to all that snow picked up by all the plows and trucks in the middle of the night? It ends up here.

Bulldozers endlessly scoop up the snow and ice...

...and dump it into this hopper thing that I can only assume has some super-heated thing inside of it.

A wide pipe hanging off the bottom of the hopper then blasts the now-melted snow and ice directly down an open manhole.

From what I've seen, this operation runs non-stop, all day and all night, until all the snow is gone.
