Boston Mayor postpones Patriots victory parade until Wednesday

The New England Patriots Super Bowl XLIX victory parade in Boston has been postponed until Wednesday morning. The New England Patriots Super Bowl XLIX victory parade in Boston has been postponed until Wednesday morning.

The prospect of digging out from the second major workday snowstorm in a week couldn't stop Patriots fans in New England from basking in the glow of their beloved football team's fourth Super Bowl championship.

Todd Penney, of Coventry, Connecticut, was still recovering from a heady night of celebrating as he prepared for work Monday as a town engineer.

"My voice is very hoarse from screaming at the TV. I was all in last night," he said. "It will be a lot more fun for me to snowblow this morning after the Patriots' win, than if they would have lost, that's for sure."

In Boston, where schools were closed but subways were running, Mayor Marty Walsh initially announced a championship parade would kick off at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Prudential Center skyscraper downtown and wind its way to City Hall.

At about 5 p.m. on Monday he announced the parade would be postponed until Wednesday morning. 

Snow was forecasted to continue to fall in Boston until about 10 p.m., but temperatures will struggle to get into the 20's on Tuesday. School in Boston has already been canceled on Tuesday.

The team was expected to land in Boston on Monday night following their 28-24 victory over the defending champion Seattle Seahawks in Glendale, Arizona.
