Street Sweeping Delayed; Don’t Move Your Car

Unsurprisingly, City Hall today announced Daytime Neighborhood Street Cleaning has been pushed back a week. A notice sent to residents this afternoon said, “due to current roadway conditions street sweeping in the North End, South End, and Beacon Hill has been cancelled through the end of the week of March 4th.”

The Public Works Department will reevaluate conditions to begin the program for the week of March 11, according to the emailed notice. More information is available directly from DPW.

WLBT previously cast skepticism on City Hall’s March 1 target for the daytime street sweeping schedule. Can’t say we weren’t justified.

They say more snow is coming this weekend.

I say, bring on Red Sox spring training!

Tomorrow the Red Sox face off against Northeastern University’s and Boston College’s baseball teams, albeit with their relievers, down in Fort Myers, Florida.

While teammates Williams, Pesky, Doerr, and DiMaggio back in Boston may be getting a bit more than a dusting – sources are calling for “plowable” snow – think about that mid-80’s-and-sunny weather going on in Florida and the lucky ones of Red Sox Nation who are getting an early preview of this year’s team.

Bet you’re wishing you stowed away with the gear on Truck Day, huh?

Whether it’s more snow or past photos from games at “The Cathedral of Boston,” share them with us on We Love Beantown’s Flickr – we’ll help you dig out from this storm if you do!

(I’ve got some serious shovel envy after missing Nemo.)

Get on up, it’s blizzard time!

Scenes like this gem from one of the many blizzards in 2010 will be recreated all over our city this weekend, I’m sure.

Nemo’s coming. No, not the cute clownfish, the giant snow storm allegedly set to dump almost two feet of, in my opinion, delightful powder on Boston.

And we want you to share your Snowpocalypse, Snowmageddon and snowed-in photos on the We Love Beantown Flickr page!

Here’s a Boston snow photo shot list to get you started:

-Top of the plow piles (Bonus if you pull either a) a Titanic Rose and Jack pose or b) a Lion King Circle of Life pose)
-Picnic in the snow
-Lawn chair, stool, Caution tape, small child being used as parking spot saver
-Smallest possible walkway shoveled on sidewalk
-Sitting with an abominable snowmanesque Red Auerbach
Puppies. Duh.

What are we missing?

After a near two-year snow drought, we’re ready for it! Bring it, Nemo.
