Crap. That ain't Boston. No, those are the distinctive row homes and side streets of Philadelphia.
While we up here in Boston didn't get ANY snow from January 1 through February 16th....they've been hammered in the Mid-Atlantic region. I believe they were dealt 27 inches two weeks ago, followed by another 12 inches last week.
Today I called one of my South Philly GutterBuddies. I actually had to call him with somewhat of a *secret passcode*. I call, let it ring once and then hang-up. I wait a minute, then I dial him back. The lone ring is a signal to him that it isn't one of his normal PIA callers. Who needs caller ID?!?!?!
GB - I had to go the the bank the other day but had to walk. Because if I drove there someone would steal my parking space. I've already shoveled out three different spots.
CaptiousNut - How much snow is on the ground right now?
GB - I've got my Camaro parked out front right now. It's completely covered across the top!
Even when there's no snow the *brotherly love* types will kill each other over parking spots.
I remember one such incident. A co-worker of mine's grandfather(!), the crazy 'old coot' killed his life-long best friend over a parking spot dispute.
