That was a mistake

I made the mistake this afternoon of trying to drive my car into Cambridge, and the Harvard Sq. area.

Not only were there very few parking spaces available, but I think that Cambridge is still under a snow emergency, so the spaces that were open would get you a ticket, or towed.

It's been two days since it stopped snowing, and it seems like alot of towns have stopped working on snow removal. So much snow fell that they need to do more than just push it to the side of the street. They need to get the bucket loaders out, put the stuff in dump trucks, and haul it away. Most all the streets I drove in Cambridge, Somerville, and elsewhere, still have four foot snowbanks on both sides of the streets.

I wonder if they are intentionally waiting to see how much of it melts in the rain that's forecast for the next few days, and then they'll start spending money on hauling it away.

Your first mistake is driving your car anywere south of Deryy N.H.

I read a comment about the snow down there
"They must not be use to having so much snow",
I thought what a bone head would say this, Boston has been getting snow since the Pilgrims landed. My only guess is that the towns dont have a snow removale budget like they did in the past ?
There was never any place to put the snow anyways.
Did you say rain... dont let Scott here you say that. Besides, rain will make it even more of a mess down there. Ice is much worse then snow.
