The X-Piles

Hello ladies and gentlemen, doggies and kitties. This is The Daily Bone and I’m your investigative doggie reporter Special Agent Chester L. W. Stephens. 




I have a serious subject to discuss today. That is the fate of our snow piles. It seems they are fast becoming … X-Piles. 

For example this is all that remains of the majestic mountain Dad made out of
almost three months worth of snow on the driveway. 

Behold, it is a work of art!

Remember these mounds of wonderful, fluffy, white snow? 

As demonstrated by my esteemed colleague Special Agent Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens,
there is nothing left but some sad puddles, and soggy, dead grass. 


And here's another mystery. We observed that after certain snow piles melted, a strange, fibrous white substance remained on the grass. Ghostwriter called it snow mold. That sounds pretty unearthly to me! We’ve never seen that before. This will warrant some serious investigation! 





Meanwhile, ghostwriter ran a few errands, then drove around a few local parking lots to check on the status of the larger snow mountain ranges. 

Here is Mount Uno. Wow, it’s looking kind of dirty and dismal. 

Mighty Taco Mountain is only a shadow of its former self. As you can see, a fossilized shopping cart is emerging from the top. 

Who knows what else might be under there? Perhaps a Mini Cooper? 

Here’s another forlorn cart melting out of the icy grip of the Southtowne Hills.
Where did it come from?

The Marketplace Mountain Range is revealing its hidden crab apple trees. 

It all looked pretty dire and depressing, not to mention dull and decrepit! Finally, she checked out the giant Macy's Mountain Range. Here she was met by some seagulls who put on an impromptu song and dance routine. 







Take a bow, fellows! Ghostwriter didn’t have any food to give them. I hope they’re not angry. 

This may be a diversionary tactic, though. I wouldn’t be surprised if they have an alien spaceship buried under there. Just wait till that behemoth melts down into an X-Pile! An alien autopsy just might be in order then. No more song and dance for you my fine feathery friends! The truth is out there. (Or in there, in this case.) 

All the while, the  mysterious shoveler stands, silent and inert. 

I want to believe! 


                                            














Does anybody else see the resemblance here?

  3. I chuckled at the title of this post and have to admit, I thought it would be about another subject entirely - something that rhymes with nog doop. I was pleasantly surprised. Amazing how those shopping carts are emerging from those snow piles!

    1. We have not overlooked that possibility, my good polkadotty friend. The sequel is coming. This is not the first spoof ghostwriter has done on the X-Files!

  7. Our Dad loved S-Files and hopes rumors of its return are true.

    those dismal dirty piles of snow truly are pathetic. Some real mud would be much more inspiring:)

    We have never seen snow mold like that, but then again, we didn't see much snow this year either:(

  9. Mulder is no where as handsome as you first of all! So nice to see you are getting some grass peeking through too. Wondering what else those snow monsters might spew out though...... Keep us updated Agents Chester and Joey Dog.

    1. We'll be sure to let you know if they become a nuisance again! Mostly, they hang around the mall, and parking lots along restaurant row. They are gradually being replaced by the smaller—and much smarter—crows.

    1. Ghostwriter is being faced with that chore too. There was too much snow to keep up with daily doo-doo pick-up in the back yard.
