Welcome to Massachussetts, where messageboards are…. actually helpful?

Someone just moved to Boston from Texas and has just a few questions about snow. Things like “Where do I get salt? And what do you do, just sprinkle it all around?”

That’s not particularly surprising. If you’re new to the climate, you’re new to the climate.

What’s impressive is that nobody (so far) has developed any serious snark, and the posts have actually provided useful information about where to get snow-clearing supplies, who is responsible for snow-clearing in apartment buildings, and the nuances of conflicting snow and street-sweeping rules (What do you do if the snow-emergency rule says not to park on the odd side, and the street-sweeping rule says not to park on the even side? Call 311, apparently).
