Snow piled up at Queensberry Street intersection

Around 5 p.m. Nick Aldwin reported from Queensberry Street in the Fenway:

There's just...no way to get to the even block of Queensberry. All crosswalks are blocked with a plow pile as high as the stop sign. Usually I'd shovel this out..it's way too much snow today.
