Conventures, which had a ringside seat for the birth and death of the Snow Pile, shows us the view this morning: Crews clearing out the last of the debris that, unlike the snow, refused to melt.
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
We finally have our vacant dirt lot back!
Quincy or Braintree? I was hoping we could keep this going a bit longer.
Now don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky. It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy
And make it a large much needed parking lot.
My boyfriend was one of the perverse individuals hoping the snow pile would last until next winter's snows. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
Or, you know, freeze.
but, well, you know.
I just would rather not think about what that dust is actually composed of.
i guess that answers the question of how much trash would have been dumped in the harbor had the snow not been stockpiled.
Two or three weeks ago, the city removed something ridiculous like 35 tons of trash from the pile.
The city wants to make themselves look like Greenpeace by exaggerating the amount of trash they claim they saved from going into Flipper's environment. By converting dump truck loads into capacity in tonnage is misleading. A twenty yard dump truck carries approximately 20 tons of crushed stone. The same truck full of paper, leaves, feathers and parking space savers weighs considerably less.
Take a look at the 15 tons of sand they dumped on Carson beach for the construction of a sand castle. It amounts to a very insignificant pile. Don't believe everything the City tells you.
in the ocean was really a ploy for not removing the snow from the neighborhoods. The residents of Boston suffered while the sidewalks and streets of the Back Bay and Seaport looked like those in Orlando.
