Boston mayor hints that some in his snowy city have lost their minds
BOSTON — In so many words, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh told people to quit acting like fools in the 7 1/2 feet of snow the city is suffering through.
That’s how much has accumulated since Jan. 23.
Mayor Walsh scolded grown-ups for acting like children; especially the ones who were reportedly jumping from windows into snow piles.
He called it a “foolish thing to do.”
“You can kill yourself,” Walsh said. “I’m asking people to stop the nonsense… This isn’t Loon Mountain. This is the city of Boston,” he said.
Walsh was speaking at a City Hall news conference about the massive snowfall record since the winter of 1995-1996, in which 107.6 inches fell.
