We park in an alley that is technically a street, as there are a couple apartments whose only street access is this alley. Well, Brookline was doing some maintenance work and had to block off the entry to the alley for about a week. Those of us that park there were given passes to park on a different street for a week. However, it created a potential fire hazard for those few apartments (maybe 6 of them?) as fire trucks wouldn’t be able to access them. Brookline’s solution? Park a fire truck in the alley THE WHOLE WEEK and hire a fireman to hang out with it at all times, just in case. No wonder property taxes in Brookline are so high!
The weather in Boston for the last several days has been just plain awful. The normally beautiful view of downtown Boston from the 12th floor of the hospital was not so beautiful today. I never thought I’d say this, but I actually wish for colder weather so this awful cold rain would at least be snow.
