Red Line vs the cold: The cold wins

In good weather, that line sometimes has delays longer than the time it would normally take to get from South Station to Needham.

Double trains on Fitchburg line

While I was out shovelling the Fitchburg/South Acton line trundled past as a double consist with a dead locomotive in the middle. I assume that's why there was a missing outbound run at about 8:15.
