Sunday morning Boston Public Works contractors were out in full force clearing the business district and intersections at Egleston Square. Sadly, a few motorists had their cars towed but the area was well marked. In one remarkable act of generosity, a tow truck driver had a car on his hook near Millennium Restaurant and was turning out when he backed up and dropped the car after being notified the work had been completed in that stretch.

This writer hasn’t seen Egleston Square this thoroughly cleared after a snow storm in 42 years of living here.
