Kosta wishes he were a roving UHub photographer, but this morning he's an immobile UHub photographer at Logan. He filed this photo of a de-icing crew around 10 a.m. from the plane he's been sitting in since 5 a.m.
From the road, Jamaica Pond still looks very much like a giant field of ice. But get out of the car and walk around and you'll see water around the edges - along with ducks, geese and even the odd fisherman enjoying the new liquid.

A female patient, located inside a motor vehicle, with a large piece of ice sticking out of the windshield. The ice had fallen from the roof of her residence.

The woman was taken to the Lahey Clinic and is expected to survive, the department says. Chief Steve Yetman adds:
Looks like last night's snow/sleet/rain was the last straw for Boston buildings. We've had a partial roof collapse on Columbia Point and a complete building collapse in Readville.
