Their shelter is melting

Igloo

This week's thaw could mean an end to the igloo that Penny Cherubino reports the wacky guys at MIT's Chi Phi fraternity built outside their pad on Hereford Street in the Back Bay. The impromptu snow cave fooled some people (raises hand) into thinking a homeless guy had found a free way to live in the tony neighborhood, at least until it melted.

Homeless guys tend to be a bit more hygiene conscious than MIT frat rats.

I really thought it was a homeless person using some serious ingenuity to build the igloo in that snowbank too. Had never seen a pillow and blanket in it though. Adam, how did you find out it was the MIT frat guys' igloo?

She did some asking around.

You do not see snow piles like that in New York City. They get rid of their snow.

They have to make room for all the bags of garbage.

Chi Phi? Where's the leather wainscotting?

Why would you live in an igloo when you've got that gorgeous building right there? Sure, hanging out under the pool table I can see, but an igloo?

Ah, engineers. :)

It would be a good guess since smoking isn't allowed in the buildings anymore.
