BOSTON (AP) — Boston is continuing to dig out from a historic storm that dumped over two feet of snow in the city and more elsewhere in the state.

In the city's Charlestown neighborhood, roads were passable but mounds of snow taller than parked cars were at most corners.

Dozens of improvised markers — beach chairs, stepping stools and parking cones — had been deployed by residents to reserve freshly shoveled parking spaces.

Residents said clearing snow was a challenge because there are few places to dump it. The once-fluffy mounds were also becoming heavier with time.

Children, meanwhile, took advantage of another day without school to go sledding at the Bunker Hill Monument.

Forecasters say southern New England may see more snow in the coming days.
