    Bostonians Find Unique Way to Cope With Relentless Snowfall

    (Published Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015)

    Some residents of South Boston have found a unique way to make the recent onslaught of snow enjoyable.

    Neighborhood kids assembled a massive 70-foot ramp made out the snow and they've been sledding, skiing and snowboarding down it.

    It may look fun to some, but others in Boston are dreading the snow that's expected to fall on Saturday night and Sunday morning.

    The streets are already a mess and space is tight. Conditions could become much worse before the weekend is out.

    Residents say the snow removal process has not met their standards.

    The two-lane roads have become one-lane roads. The snowy streets have even prevented some children from getting picked up for school by buses.

    "He tried to come down and couldn't make it to the top of the street, and then and then drove off, not being able to drive down our street," Oakwood Street resident Jua Robinson said.

    "It's pretty rough, but I've never seen it this narrow. There's still a lot of ice in the middle of the road," added Ruskindale Road resident Livingston Beckford.
