Ya not surprising.. the wind really has picked up out there. Glad I'm done with all my errands now until the weekend. Brrr

And.. wasn't the T going to do some tree trimming this weekend anyways? (I think I got a notice for that). Well.. seems like Mother Nature may help out with that.

There is a big pile of logs at the Riverside parking lot. I speculate that today's mess was fixed relatively quickly because they still had the big equipment nearby, also parked in the Riverside parking lot.

I hope that Newton Fire and Police shut down the D Line till it is safe to transit passengers.

If we had an open carry chain saw law than this wouldn't be a problem. Arm yourselves !

The MBTA had schedule tree removal work for the past two weeks removing almost 600 trees between Newton and Brookline. There is a lot of "standing firewood", meaning trees that fell over and are just leaning dead on other trees. It's just plain negligence on behalf of the MBTA.
