Post and photos by Alison Lee.
Winter in Boston. Last week I went to parents group and heard stories of mothers stuck at home for days and days, unable to leave the house due to the amount of snow on the ground. One family escaped to Florida.
The snow is melting now and I am reminded that even though it’s easier to get around with a stroller again, it’s still far from easy. If you have kids, the following photos may be familiar. Consider how easy it is to keep the child asleep with this walking environment:
• Footpaths that disappear
• Curbs across crossings
• Trees planted in the middle of sidewalks
• Sidewalks erupting with tree roots
