I took some nice pictures of the snow this morning – check ’em out here. It’s still snowing. And my company’s moving today. In the snow. Without movers. Ugh.

I saw several amusing things on my walk from Harvard Square to Porter last night, including:

  • A sign that read: “No parking. Violators will be towed perfunctorily.” Only in Cambridge, I fear.
  • A rabbit in the front yard of a real estate office. I don’t think it was a pet (no leash), but I could be wrong. It was pretty happily enjoying its meal of grass.
  • A book of palindrome cartoons, including one captioned “Mr. Owl ate my metal worm.

The other day, as I was riding the T, the train conductor on the red line accidentally drove past a stop! Not just a little bit, either – we flew through Harvard Square, and didn’t stop ’til the whole train was well past the station. There was a bit of backing and forthing between the train operator and the central dispatch, as evidenced by the backing up and advancing of the train. In the end, though, we skipped Harvard and went to Porter. Asleep at the wheel of the train? That’s no good at all…
