As this interactive graphic shows, Bostonians have plenty of local customs for dealing with snow. Yesterday, during a snow/sleet mix that was less than advertised, the pedestrian route crossing over Morrissey Boulevard was being cleared by a team of shovel-wielding patrons of the trial court work-release program. At the JFK/UMass T stop, a bobcat with a snowplow cleared a round-about.

And then there's how they roll in Chukotka, in the Russian far north. Snow becomes the road there.
