Mollasaurus wonders who printed up these cards now floating around the T.
Last night, Vasant Marur was out for a stroll along Park Drive when he noticed guys in Bobcats clearing snow from the roadway by pushing it into mounds along the curb, where it promptly rolled onto the previously clear sidewalks, blocking them.
But rather than just take a photo and tweet about it, Marur looked for the supervisor of the operation - a MassDOT guy, since Park Drive is owned by DCR:
I had a friendly chat and indicated that all the snow was falling onto the sidewalk. He was nice about it, stepped out of the truck and realized the problem. They are now clearing the sidewalk as I type this up.
Not all T maintenance workers are clearing tracks. As Sybil shows us, a number were busy today clearing snow off the roof of the Riverside trolley facility.
Paul Nutting watched a large contingent of workers removing snow from the roof of the Government Center Garage today.
Boston restaurant owners facing empty tables due to all that snow are using social media to advertise new discounts to entice customers out of their igloos.
They're posting nightly specials to #digoutdineout - an idea whipped up by Kevin Long of Big Night Entertainment Group (Empire, Red Lantern and GEM)
Yeah, about that. Looks like a plow driver completely covered it up with snow boulders, so, as Molly Lanzarotta reports, Fairmount Line riders and people looking to get from one side of the train tracks and the Neponset to the other have to walk in the street again.
It's no better down the line at Readville station, where Boston Strolls reports sidewalks have gone unshoveled since that first January storm.
Robert Farrell looked up at his neighbor's house in Jamaica Plain this morning.
Laurin Stoler shows us cascading icicles on Harcourt Street, says:
I keep wanting to break out the food coloring.
The MBTA provided this photo of workers clearing ice and snow on Red Line tracks near Water Street in Quincy this morning.
Mayor Walsh said today the parking ban on main streets will remain in effect "until further notice."
At his latest snow press conference, Walsh also figuratively wagged his finger at people he said have taken to jumping out of windows into snow banks: Cut that out, he warned. There could be a giant death icicle that's fallen off your roof in that snow bank and what happens when you land on that? "This isn't Loon Mountain, this is the city of Boston," he said.
Walsh urged people to take it easy when shoveling; he said one person had a heart attack while shoveling yesterday and died.
