Almost stuck truck at Storrow Drive entrance

GM2059 shows us a near-Storrowing around noon at a Storrow Drive entrance. Guess there's no question this time whether or not there's a warning sign in place. The State Police cruiser on the left is blocking the road so the driver can back up, of course.

UPDATE, 7:10 p.m.: The bomb squad determined the package was not suspicious but was somebody's misplaced property.

Not only is the store now shut, but Boylston Street in front of the store is closed to pedestrians and motor vehicles.

Palestinian supporters in front of Trinity Church

Back Bay commuter-rail lobby

Tristan was impressed with the fresh paint at Back Bay today:

Looks like Keolis did some enspiffening at #BackBay station! Nice change.
