Boston Snow Emergency Winding Down

Things are slowly returning to normal in Boston as the powerful winter storm winds down.

The city lifted its snow emergency and parking ban at 6 p.m. on Monday. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said people should continue to drive with caution or use public transportation as crews finish clearing snow from city streets.

The mayor is also reminding residents who use lawn chairs or other such items to claim and save parking spaces in front of their homes must remove those savers within 48 hours of the snow emergency being lifted.

The storm left more than 18 inches of snow in parts of Boston.
