Irilyth says it took 45 minutes to get from Watertown Square to the Masspike entrance in Newton Corner this morning because of a protest by Newton firefighters:
Tim gets onto Rte. 30 from the turnpike this morning and notices a car on fire:
... I passed the car as the driver was getting out. He was running around to the front of the car, which, I noted with some alarm, now featured flames starting to lick out from around the edges of the hood. And he was trying to open the hood. ...
He also notes that in the DC area, traffic reporters would charmingly refer to such events as "car-B-Q."
