Meanwhile in Boston… the mayor wants residents to stop jumping out windows.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Mayor Martin J. Walsh issued a warning to anyone participating in a viral video trend where they record themselves diving into piles of snow.

People have been posting the clips online to YouTube and Vine with the hashtag#BostonBlizzardChallenge.

“I’m asking people to stop their nonsense right now. These are adults jumping out windows,” he said. “This isn’t a Loon Mountain, this is the city of Boston.”

Actual Loon Mountain in New Hampshire also got wind of the Mayor’s comments, and they say they don’t want any of these shenanigans either. They spoke with one of the jumpers about it in a new video.
