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.
But as long as you're out there, spend 15 minutes shoveling out a hydrant - and help your neighbors out.
He urged people to hire contractors to clear off their roofs - and said that goes double for all you out-of-town landlords.
Walsh again said people who shovel out a space on the street deserve to keep it for a while. "People are shoveling spots out, they're going to have their spaces for a little while."
He added that people who park in spaces somebody else shoveled out should be courteous: Put the space saver back when you leave.
Courtesy also counts on the road: Stop blaring your horn at the driver in front of you when his or her wheels are spinning and obviously aren't getting any traction.
He continued that city officials are beginning to plan for a massive pothole filling season this spring.
In response to a reporter's question, Walsh said that the city will ensure South Boston will have its St. Patrick's parade.
Police Commissioner William Evans said there has been no epidemic of snowblower thefts in the city of Boston.
