Picture of a snow covered wheelchair accessible ramp

Last year, I responded to a neighbor who asked for help shoveling her driveway and accessible ramp since she could neither physically do it herself nor afford to pay someone to do it for her. I was happy to help!

The experience reminded me that neighbors who can't physically shovel or live on fixed incomes often have no option but to wait for the snow to melt. Without help, they can’t get to work, the grocery store, the pharmacy, or doctor appointments. Read more.

And that means you'll have until 4 p.m. on Thursday to save your parking space, the one you've so arduously dug out (except in the South End and Bay Village, where space savers are never allowed).

Man in canoe with handheld sail to catch the winds off Dorchester Bay

One of these days, years, decades, the state promises to do something about Morrissey Boulevard so it doesn't flood when it rains or somebody spills their iced Dunk's. In the meantime, Savin Hill Sailor shows us yesterday's Second Semi-Annual Morrissey Boulevard Challenge, which involved getting across and along Morrissey Boulevard when cars couldn't. Don't worry: The canoe was equipped with a paddle for when the winds die down or the sailor's arms get tired. Video.

Long ditch floods into marshland

The Charles, the Needham Line and the Long Ditch overflowing into Cutler Park. See it larger.

Yesterday afternoon, just before the deluge that gave us That Rainbow, the Long Ditch that connects two loops of the Charles at the Dedham/Needham line (dug by the busy-beaver colonial settlers who also gave us the Mother Brook), had overflowed its banks and was flooding the nearby marshes of Cutler Park. As it was designed to do. Read more.

Flooding outside the New England Aquarium

This morning, Lisa Green walked from the North End to Rowes Wharf, where Boston Harbor was a lot closer than it usually is, like at the Aquarium, where the harbor consumed the harborwalk.

Snow covered car on Tremont Street

Trevor Michaels spotted a Masshole inbound on Tremont Street at Ruggles this morning. He adds:

This dipshit nearly cut me off because they were in the wrong lane and turned left in that incorrect lane.

French toast and fruit

Update, 12 p.m. Now snowing in Roslindale.

Rob Adams reported at 8:15 a.m.: Read more.
