One day when I first moved to Boston, I was listening to Car Talk on NPR. I hadn’t lived in Boston for very long but I already loved what I heard from the Magliozzi brothers on their show. I could not believe that I spent hours listening to a show where two goof balls told stories about cars. I am not a car person and I don’t really know much about how they are run, nor do I care.
One joke stuck with me in particular, about Boston’s four seasons, that makes up the title of this entry.
Commonwealth avenue, near my house, is in the road reconstruction phase of the year. I guess people outside of Massachusetts call this “summer.” So they are tearing up the Boston University bridge to replace when I assume are 100 year old pieces of track. Its caused no end of chaos around here and for my part, I’m over on Beacon street taking the wealthier, classier C line to work in the morning. Am I wealthier and classier? Probably not. But the road reconstruction. Well, it makes for good photos:
