Snow covered handicap ramp in East Boston

A perplexed citizen in East Boston wonders what sort of spell he needs to cast to get a handicap ramp uncovered:

Did you know there is a handicap ramp at the corner of Marion and White? I do. But this person doesn't because once snow covers it. It's like the ramp is a student at Hogwarts sneaking around in an invisibility cloak. After being
