Roving UHub photographer Jed Hresko spotted this snowman taking shelter this morning at Laviscount Park on Humboldt Avenue in Roxbury.
Enoch Pratt noticed this sign outside a South Boston church on Sunday.
Greg Hum shows off his two-wheeled drumming during the Friday snowstorm.
Amy Chandler shows us one of the features of living right on the ocean.
Also see Shirley Street in Winthrop.
State Police, of course, closed Morrissey Boulevard early this morning, which is what you can expect from a road built roughly two inches above sea level next to a bay. And that, naturally, meant shutting the exit to Morrissey off I-93 northbound.
At 7:59 a.m., Steve Bickerton tweeted:
Neponset Circle backed up Gallivan Blvd. to Eire Pub.
Neponset Ave is a parking lot. 15 mins from Coffey Street to Lil Peach.
Meanwhile, upbay at Castle Island, Steve Brady reported:
The ocean is slowly devouring the Sugar Bowl, and the water is up to the sidewalk at parts of the causeway. Couldn't even see a hint of the harbor islands from the Sugar Bowl, either. Just the swollen ocean. Very eerie.
We're now under a Winter Storm Watch for Wednesday night through Friday:
STRONG WINDS AND HEAVY WET SNOW WILL WRAP TO THE N OF THIS LOW...LIKELY AFFECTING PORTIONS OF EASTERN MASS... THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY...BUT CONFIDENCE GROWS THAT THIS STORM WILL HAVE A MODERATE TO HIGH IMPACT ON SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND.
THIS WILL BE A LONG DURATION STORM...WITH SNOWS BECOMING HEAVIER EARLY THURSDAY MORNING INTO THE DAY THURSDAY. THE SNOW WILL GRADUALLY TAPER OFF BY THE MORNING FRIDAY.
Wind gusts out of the northeast up to 50 m.p.h.? You bet. Potential for damaging coastal flooding due to the confluence of the storm and high tides? Of course.
And that's why the French Toast Alert level is now Elevated.
UPDATE: Alert level now at High due to warning by Todd Gutner to get errands done now before we're swept out to sea, or words to that effect.
A roving UHub photographer forwards this picture, taken around 4:40 p.m. yesterday, of the handicap parking spaces outside 12 Channel St., an Innovation District building owned by the BRA and EDIC.
They haven't plowed their handicap spaces since the blizzard.
Nestochan observed this statue on Montrose Street in Roxbury.
At least as of 6:30 p.m., no Snow Emergency or Parking Ban has been declared in Boston.
The news is unlikely to please either the East Boston resident who filed a formal complaint asking for action against somebody who "moved our space saver and stole our shoveled spot" or the person in Dorchester who filed a formal complaint asking for action against neighbors "still using space savers leaving residents who stopped using them when we were supposed to with very limited parking."
Katken ran across this space saver in Jamaica Plain yesterday:
Much better than the usual orange cone, or broken chair, or the ubiquitous trash barrel.

Sgalla watched a kid waiting for a school bus on Kneeland Street this morning makes some snowy Valentine's Day hearts.
A shocked South End resident cannot believe this sort of sign is now popping up on places like West Brookline Street:
This is a highly disturbing sign. South End Neighborhood Associations do not support space savers. Please have DPW begin removing these items.
The kidlet and I went in search of creative space savers today. After quickly realizing people in Roslindale are pretty boring (cones, chairs and trash cans, yawn), we headed over to South Boston, of course. They did not disappoint, although I had to shoot fast - the drivers there seem to object to you getting out of your car for the perfect shot of a floral space saver.
The MetroWest Daily News reports a Natick man acknowledged in court yesterday he was plowing while drunk on Friday.
Roving UHub photographer Neil roved himself up the Pru yesterday.
