In many ways, it was a magical weekend in Boston’s North End / Waterfront as the Blizzard of 2013 had great timing to fall on a weekend, topped off by a sunny “Day After” Sunday. Sure, there were the expected problems from the 5th largest snowfall of all time, but most neighbors seemed to be in relatively good spirits. When the sun came out, the neighborhood looked like a wonderland. The snow was still pretty, there was very light traffic and people were outside everywhere! An igloo fort at Christopher Columbus Park was a big attraction for the young (and not so young). Lots of car owners were taking the opportunity to dig out. Dozens of kids made the most of the small hills such as along Snow Hill and “the flights” in the Gassy. Most streets received long awaited attention from the snow plows although a few of the most narrow variety are still waiting to be cleared. A selection of photos from “The Day After” is shown below.
