Boston blackout?

Darkness falls on Boston.

Around 1:30 am, heading down Harvard Street near Comm. Ave.

Some drivers are just stupid

I was at the light at the corner of VFW Parkway and Rte. 109 around 5:45pm today and noticed crime scene tape and a few police vehicles are blocking VFW Pkwy. South. (Anyone know why?)

Some idiots still kept trying to turn onto the closed portion of Rte. 1 South. What did they not understand about the police cars and the patient officer directing traffic? (Those of us going straight on Rte. 109 were supposed to follow the traffic light.) The officer saw that the idiots were totally screwing up the traffic pattern by their insistence that they HAD to get on Rte. 1 South, that he seemed to start directing them to a sort of waiting area near the cruisers. (I don't recall it being a very residential area, so I'm not sure if they were desperate to go to Stop n' Shop or what....)

{Note - The kind folks at Universal Hub later informed me that the blockade was due to a fire.}

Sugar-scented commute

The scent of fresh baked goods lingered in the morning air as I drove down Centre Street in West Roxbury on Tuesday. What a nice way to start the usually droll drive to work.

Springtime snowflakes

Big, fluffy flakes are falling outside my window... in late March.

Signs of spring

The people in the neon yellow shirts are (re)appearing at intersections...

spring must be just around the corner.
