Frustration mounts with unplowed roads, buried cars
SOUTH BOSTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- In South Boston, it's always a challenge to get parking - and the spot saving will only get more intense after people work so hard to clear out their cars, all as the city digs out from underneath this storm with more bad weather on the way.
The snowfall may be over, but the frustration for many continues to grow.
In Dorchester, neighbors took matters into their own hands, using their own snow blowers to clear the streets because city plows hadn't.
Frustration also hit a high in Charlestown before city plows arrived late Sunday night.
"How is someone going to come down? What if we lost the electricity?" said Frank Telley.
Telley's wife relies on oxygen - and he's worried for her health if something goes wrong.
Just a few blocks could mean the difference between snow-covered roads and clear streets around Boston.
Many side streets in Brighton and other parts of the city were plowed as city leaders brought in extra plows from all around New England to help.
"I think the major thoroughfares need to be clear because if they're not and we are, there is nowhere we could go anyway. I know some are frustrated by it I'm sure the city is doing what they need to in order to get us all clear eventually," said one resident.
Meantime, others worried that their homes encased in snow could turn into ticking time bombs.
Rain soon on its way and warmer temperatures could add to the risk of roofs collapsing.
Others, however, found another way of getting rid - even without cleared roads.
Crews continued to work overnight to clear snow from the roads, hoping to give people as much access as possible ahead of this morning's commute.
