It doesn't look like snow to me either . . . so dense and dry. And exactly why would they pile up snow in a dry warehouse where possibly no adequate drainage is built to deal with huge amount of water when the snow melts?

I would love to see the National Geographic society explain to the world what Nature is really trying to tell us with all these storms and crises ....

They're not piling up snow in this picture, they are working with salt. Probably prior to loading it into the salt trucks.
