- The Mayor of Boston has told residents to stop the ‘nonsense’ of jumping out of windows onto banks of snow below and uploading the videos under the hashtag #BostonBlizzardChallenge.
- Marty Walsh stressed that the practice is potentially deadly as there could be ice hidden in the snow, and reminded people that “this isn’t Loon Mountain. This is the City of Boston.”
- It seems people are trying to find ways to amuse themselves during a record period of snowfall during which 7 and a half feet of snow has fallen since 23 January!
- Loon Mountain is a mountain in New Hampshire with facilities for recreational activities.
