The Snowstorm’s Residue

January 20, 2011

All of us have noticed the huge amounts of snow that fell on us, and the giant snow piles created by plows with virtually nowhere to put it.

Automobiles in our neighborhoods on some streets will not move for the remainder of the winter due to the sheer weight and volume of the snow and the fact it has frozen during the current cold wave.

Maneuvering the streets in our neighborhoods has been made much more difficult by all the snow and ice.

The simplest of daily affairs have been compromised by the snow such as shopping for food and getting it out of our cars into our homes and parking, which has become near to impossible.

The forecast is for snow and more sleet and ice. In fact, we could get another 3-6 inches of snow on Friday.

And by the way: It was 78 degrees in Palm Beach Monday afternoon.

    Ouch!! It’s not just in Charlestown, but it’s all over the place where the snow is piled high in so many places, with virtually no place to put it. At least in Somerville, when there’s a snow emergency predicted, they ban parking on the even-numbered sides of streets, so they can plow them, and make school and city municiple lots available for residents who can’t find space on the odd-numbered sides of streets. This has been the toughest winter yet, but spring will be here before we know it.
