School Cancellations Add Up After Snowiest Week in Boston’s History

Just one week after facing the snowy wrath of Blizzard Juno, Boston braced for more after celebrating a Super Bowl victory from the New England Patriots. Monday’s Winter Storm Linus dumped another foot of snow on top of the twenty-four inches that were already there for the city, causing Mayor Walsh to shut down public schools for the fifth day in the last seven.
The announcement came late Monday afternoon, with Mayor Walsh’s main concern being safety. In the press release, he stated, “Our crews will be working hard to clear all streets and schools tonight and tomorrow as we recover from this ongoing winter storm.”
