The T says service was pretty durn good on the four subway lines thanks to all the investments in things like new third rails and plows and dispatch centers.
So far this morning, the T has reported Red Line problems that include dead trains at South Station and near Ashmont, signal and switch problems on the Braintree branch and at Park Street. Green Line trolleys ran even slower than usual on the C line.
But as of 9:50 a.m., the T says everything's back to normal.

Shoveling snow is hard, but important, work. When a winter storm hits, it brings its share of challenges and opportunities with it. Perhaps, shoveling snow is just not your thing. Or you are physically unable to shovel. Maybe, you or your kids are looking to make a few extra bucks. Or quite simply, you are looking to pay it forward and want to lend a hand to your neighbors in need.
