7 feet of snow in Boston?  Bah!!  1/2" of rain?  Bah!!!!!!   18 Scouts braved the rained, and tested their "preparedness" in a hike throughout Boston, where we climbed the 294 stairs up the Bunker Hill Mounument, saw the historic USS Constitution (Old Ironside), and enjoyed the food at Quincy Market.  A good time was had by all!!
