Boston snow emergency continues: No school tomorrow

Mayor Walsh just announced BPS schools are closed tomorrow, but that City Hall and BPL branches will be open.

He said the city snow emergency remains in effect, so no parking on snow-emergency routes. At a 4 p.m. press conference, he didn't have a time for it to be lifted, but said it would probably be sometime tomorrow. Once it's lifted, you'll have 48 hours, legally, anyway, to save a space - except in the South End, where space saving is always declasse.

Walsh pleaded with residents who have trash pickup tomorrow (normally Tuesday pickups) to clear out a space for their barrels, rather than, oh, balancing them on a snow drift.

He added that EMS delivered a baby in Roslindale, "so we did have a snow baby delivered today," Walsh said.

The city may have to shorten the route of the weekend St. Patrick's Day parade in South Boston, due to the fact that many South Boston residents have no place to put snow but between cars. It would cost "millions and millions of dollars to clear out every corner of every street," Walsh said.

They would have just delayed the parade a week.

And I’m willing to bet anything Walsh was at that delayed parade.

about not inconveniencing people who make outlandish sums of money they could use to get their way, there'd be no question about having the Saint Drunkards Patrick Day parade on Sunday, snowpiles or no snowpiles.
