Mayor Menino apologizes for clogged Boston streets

Travel curtailed, schools closed in city and beyond

More than two days after the last snowflakes fell, Mayor Thomas M. Menino expressed frustration Monday at the pace of snow removal and said he was sorry that some of Boston’s side streets remained clogged and impassable.

“I apologize for it,” Menino said in an interview, when asked what he would say to people whose streets are still snowed in. “We’ll get there as quickly as possible. Sometimes you have to be patient in a storm of this magnitude.”
