The Space Needle is known for many things: being 605 feet tall, being a landmark of the Seattle skyline, and now, for being a pain to clear snow off of.

On February 13, the Space Needle Twitter account showed off the snow globe that was Seattle.

With the tower being over 600 feet above the city, removing snow off of the observation deck posed a challenge.

Staff at the Space Needle ended up using shovels and rolling bins to load the snow into the elevators. The snow then took a ride down the needle, and it was discarded outside.
