Boston Mayor Marty Walsh would really appreciate it if the residents of Boston would stop jumping out of their windows into the snow.
Boston has seen a little bit of snow this winter and apparently people are dealing with it by leaping out of their windows. While we don’t have an exact number of people who have participated in the #BostonBlizzardChallange, the problem is so prevalent that the mayor of Boston actually addressed the issue during a morning press conference.
The mayor attempted to explain to the people of Boston that they were not living on “Loon Mountain” and that someone could get seriously hurt.
“I’m asking people to stop their nonsense right now. These are adults jumping out windows. It’s a foolish thing to do and you could kill yourself. We’re asking people to act responsibly in the city of Boston. This isn’t Loon Mountain, this is the city of Boston, where we’re trying to remove snow off of the street and it becomes very dangerous. And the last thing we want to do is respond to an emergency call where somebody jumped out of the window because they thought it was a funny thing to do.”
It’s been an interesting week in the northeast. In fact, it’s been so snowy that the Ithaca Tourism Board is actually urging potential visitors to go to the Florida Keys instead. Of course, you probably can’t do this in Florida.
