Trees at Millennium Park in the snow

Beyond some plowing in the main parking lot, the city has left the upper level of Millennium Park untouched, leading to vast expanses of white. You can see where the more intrepid few have fallen through the snow as they try to walk over the path - except for the one prepared person who shushed around on snow shoes.

I am seeing this all over Boston. This one I happened to see on Linden Street in Brookline. It is the epitome of laziness. I always thought dog owners would be a bit more responsible. Some poor soul is going to have to clean this up. Also, I was sledding with my two kids at the sugarbowl near Jamaica Pond day after last storm. A fellow with a four month old Siberian husky let the dog crap in the snow right next to all the sledders. A few adults asked him to clean it up. He just covered it and walked away as fast as he could. Too many self centered dog owners these days are making all dog owners look bad.
