All the doctors in the world upstairs could do nothing to revive the outbound Orange Line train that expired at Tufts Medical Center around 8:20 a.m.

This was after a Green Line trolley expired at Copley and various trains heading to South Station took a break in their morning routine thanks to switch problems.

Eater Boston alerts us to a one-day kosher-ish homage to the Chinese New Year at a Chinatown restaurant:

What happens when you mix the Chinese New Year with Jewish cuisine with O Ya/jm Curley alum Mark O'Leary, and then you serve it all at Shojo? You get dishes like luobagao latkes with lox, matzoh ball ramen, and black & white challah, and you only get it for one night.

A wary citizen complains about snow piled up on a ledge at the top of 40 Beach St. in Chinatown:

A wall of maybe a bankers box sized chunk of snow fell onto The street and almost onto a young woman with a baby carriage. Another almost fell on to me. There is more snow up there and I can see from the look of people that have been more falling snow. But the very least, there should be a barrier around the area where the snow was falling so that you don't walk under it anymore. At best, it should be taken off the ledge.
