Ice capades

Matt overhears:

"I haven't seen this much water suck this much since Kevin Costner was in Waterworld."

Anali recounts slipping and sliding on the way out of her apartment yesterday. Then things got worse:

I'm driving down Newport Avenue and in front of me see one of the biggest potholes I've ever seen in person. I couldn't move or stop in time and my car just fell in it. I saw my hubcap spinning off in front of me, then the hubcap took a left and made a U turn. I pulled over. Got out of my car, ran into the street and retrieved it. I was so happy that I was able to get it. So I put it back on the tire, which appeared normal. I get in my car and start driving and it's not so normal anymore. Why did it not even occur to me that my tire was flat? I pulled over, got out of my car and saw the flattest tire that I'd ever seen in my life. And the hubcap had gone missing again.

The Urban Pantheist hopes for a quick thaw:

Plowed-up boulders of sleet coated in a thick glaze of ice make Boston's sidewalks look as though they are paved with Screaming Yellow Zonkers.

Awful sidewalks in Natick.

Carmen posts a list of the things that didn't help free her ice-bound car, including a Dustbuster and a container of Morton's salt.

Nice photo of what is probably incredibly treacherous Fort Hill in Roxbury.

Jessica Smith tours several neighborhoods and declares Roslindale has the iciest, worst sidewalks in the city (ready, Rozzieites? 1. 2. 3. We're number 1! We're number 1!).
