The T's Joe Pesaturo shows us the trees that came down on the Orange Line tracks near Oak Grove late this afternoon.
The T swapped in buses, but, of course, they had some trouble keeping up with the demand, as Jill shows us at Wellington:
The best part was that by the time some people got to Oak Grove on the shuttle buses, the trains had been running again for "some time".
Except that this particular tree, as well as many others in that picture, is an ailanthus altissima, aka a "Tree of Heaven" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ailanthus_altissima).
