Mayor Walsh just announced BPS schools will be closed due to the storm. City community centers, however, will be open. City Hall will also be open, but only staffed with emergency personnel.
Walsh said a decision has not yet been made about Friday.
The city has 40,000 tons of rock salt ready to go. Walsh said city workers will be working as hard as possible to clear the roads before Friday, when any slush will freeze rock solid as the temperatures plunge.
The storm will be an officials city snow emergency, so get your cones, chairs and toilets ready - unless you live in the South End, where space saving is prohibited.
