Seems Boston has this nifty little search tool that lets you type in a car's license-plate number and see when it was last towed (and to where).

Over on Boston Reddit, mac_question has been using the tool to follow the exploits of a 2017 Fiat sports car (no, that's not an oxymoron), whose owner keeps parking it haphazardly at Summer and High streets downtown. In the past three months, the car has been towed five times from that spot. Maybe it's still cheaper than a deeded parking space?

The Globe reports the owner of the Summer Street power plant, which almost never generates power anymore, has put the property up for sale - with an eye towards maybe turning the space into residential and commercial space, as one does.

Although the mostly pink plant no longer pushes out the current, it is still in use as a power substation.

Ed. note: Could somebody please find a giant inflatable pig and float it up near the smokestacks before they come down?

However, he reports that, unlike with the boat, the Boston Fire Department was able to help the driver do the sort of driving that got him out of there.

Boat at Lincoln and Summer streets in Boston

We needed this. After days of life in Ice Station Zebra, we've all gotten cranky and surly.

So what better thing to lift our moods, if even for a moment, than something so out of the ordinary, so completely ludicrous as a yacht stuck on a snowbank in the middle of downtown Boston?
