Shovel everyone out!

According to a blog written by Martine Powers of boston.com, a Chicago woman named Jamie Lynn Ferguson, 29,  was sick and tired of her neighbors fighting over parking spots after snow storms.  So what did she do?  She took the day off and shoveled out every spot on her block so no one could claim the spots.  She then documented her progress on twitter in the hopes to inspire others.

So what do you think, Southie?  How do you think the actions of Jamie Lynn would go over in Southie?

Interesting side note: In Chicago they call spot savers, “dibs chairs”.

    And probably every car on the street was shot up with a nail gun soon after

    If the City removed the snow from the streets instead of plowing snow from corner to corner then we wouldn’t have this problem. If someone thinks they can shovel out every car in an entire block, God love them. But it would never happen so don’t get rid of your cones just yet.
