2:05 p.m. Just got back from a trip to Centre Street in West Roxbury. Only an idiot would be on the streets now (raises hand).
It's an official snow emergency in the city of Boston, people! And you know what that means? Yes, make sure your larder is well stocked with bread, eggs and milk AND you've pulled up all those crappy old chairs from the basement, you know, the ones missing seat backs and the ones with only three legs, for curbside space saving.
Also, Mayor Thomas M. Menino wishes to remind homeowners not to shovel snow into the street. Such "throwbacks" only make it more difficult for everybody, including Mayor Thomas M. Menino, who, trust me, you do NOT want showing up at your door with a citation.
Washington Street in Roslindale around 2 p.m.:
