Tweet a date! Believe it or not, there is a snow mound still hanging around in Southie! After a brutal winter, there is still dirty snow at the snow farm on Tide Street. How long do you think it will last? Well, Mayor Marty Walsh is making a contest out of it. Guess right, and you might just win a meet and greet with the mayor himself. We say a better prize would be that the mayor himself will come shovel out your car after the first snow storm next winter and even place a spot saver in the space. You can even follow the snow pile on twitter – @SouthieSnowPile To enter, participants must tweet at @Marty_Walsh using the hashtag #BOSMeltNow, including the month and day they believe the snow will be fully melted. Submissions are due by midnight on July 15, 20
