UNEMPLOYED BOYFRIEND: Live in the JP Snow Fort!

When life gives you snow, make a snowfort. After Snowmygod 2018, Donrick Pond built a publicly accessible snowfort on South Huntington Avenue, at Bynner, in Jamaica Pond.

He outfitted it with a chair. A couple nights ago, Mickey PG put on a live show there. Of course, the forecast for tomorrow calls for rain (and possible floods), so the concert space could be at an end.

The MSPCA says it's closed its South Huntington Avenue dog park again, this time to protect a mother rabbit and some new baby buns currently nesting there:

We anticipate re-opening the park in two to three weeks after the babies have been weaned and are able to move on. We ask for patience as we prioritize the safety of #wildlife who share this space with the community. We can all live skillfully (and enjoyably!) alongside wild life such as these rabbits.

Tree asks people to stop putting trash around it at the base of  Mission Hill

Chris in Boston noticed a tree at Huntington and South Huntington avenues had a request for passersby this morning: Stop leaving trash around it.

Ed. note: Given its location, the tree should probably also be asking people to drive more carefully in the rain and not crash into it.
