Boston took it on the chin this week, when the first big blizzard of 2015 hit the city hard. More than 20 inches of snow piled up, closing schools, the airport, and public transportation.

But nobody is sitting around waiting for the snow to melt.

City officials posted this video Tuesday of the technology the city is employing to clear its streets. “In Boston, we don’t just fight snow harder. We fight it smarter.”

We just hope Boston Logan gets up and running in time for all those New England Patriots fans to make it to Phoenix for the Super Bowl this Sunday.
