Snow driving ban keeping you from getting to the lifts? Just shred Garden Street!
It’s about to get pretty Hoth-y out there over the next two days. Study your snow emergency routes and warm up the Tauntaun. The fun is likely to start slowly around 4 p.m., but by primetime, we’ll be in full fledged blizzard.

Boston has been chosen by the US Olympic Committee to represent the country and bid for the Summer Olympics in 2024. I’m personally a supporter, and think it’d be exciting – then again, I like sports, pomp, circumstance and international grandstanding. There are arguments against it (most of them are traffic-related, some on the questions of costs), from the same people who complain about necessary updates to the transportation system in the city.
Urban developers, apply. Also, we stand to look more like London than Sydney or Athens.
Nothing has been decided yet. It won’t be for years. Boston does not “have” the Olympics. Just a chance, and that’s something cool – it says our city has something to offer. Before the NIMBYism, at least appreciate our appreciation.
