Belgrade Avenue in Roslindale in the snow

A peeved citizen complains in Roslindale:

Really mayor Walsh? Does it seem like a good idea to make employees report to work in these conditions? The T is running huge delays, roads in Rozzie are unplowded, sidewalks unshoveled, COURTS are closed but city hall is open. Not smart.
