BOSTON (WWLP) – Monday’s snowstorm dropped two feet of snow in Boston, and as people dig themselves out, the city is bracing for yet another blast of wintry weather this week.
It has been the snowiest thirty days in the city’s history, with Mother Nature dropping more than six feet of snow in the last four weeks. Now, people are left to dig themselves out once again.
Snow banks were piled even higher on Boston streets Tuesday, as maintenance crews cleared off the snow from the State House steps. The historic Boston Common looks like a sea of snow, with park benches and trash can almost completely buried. Transit service was unavailable for those who rely on commuter trains and subways to get to work, as the T suspended service other than buses and ferries.
Lynda McGuirk, who moved to Boston from Berkshire County, told 22News that this is some of the most snow she’s ever seen. “I don’t recall getting this much snow when I lived in the Berkshires. Honestly, not!” McGuirk said.
The misery is not over for Bostonians, as more snow is expected on Thursday night into Friday, and a chance for additional snowfall this weekend.
