Walsh gets a primer in city snow removal

With Walsh at his side, Menino gathered more than a dozen heads of city departments to conduct a mock snow-response strategy session at City Hall, an opportunity for the mayor-elect to gain an inside look at what it takes to respond to a major snow event and the kinds of decisions he will be expected to make after he takes office in January.
