This is what the Northeastern University campus looked like on Valentine’s day. It’s the first real snow we’ve had this year.
On a somewhat related note, I took the commuter rail train in on Tuesday, as I do on most mornings I teach. We seemed to be heading toward Ruggles, the stop that’s pretty much on campus, at a brisk rate, when there was an announcement that the train wouldn’t actually be stopping there, due to maintenance work.
To be fair, the announcer went on to tell us that we should just get off at Back Bay and get the Orange T line back, and that worked pretty well. I’m glad to say that I don’t seem to be part of the more striking stories of Boston public transport.
