Strorrowed truck in Cambridge

Roving UHub photographer Wiley Cox spotted a freshly storrowed truck sitting outside Micro Center on Memorial Drive in Cambridge this morning. He reports it's the first Mem Drive storrowing he's ever seen, so a round of applause.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


They almost made it.

1970 or 1971, I was an MIT student. I forget if it was Memorial Day weekend or Labor Day weekend, but it was the Friday night, fairly late. It was a beautiful night so I decided to walk outside instead of through the Infinite Corridor (which wasn't yet known by that name, but that's another story...). I was walking along Memorial Drive, past the Great Court (now Killian Court), approaching Mass. Ave., next to Building 1. I heard a loud "scrunch" sound and I knew exactly what had happened. I never even saw it -- it was below grade from where I was -- but I immediately walked straight over to the police call box (no cell phones yet) at the corner of Mass. and Memorial. I told the dispatcher that another U-Haul had hit the underpass.

La plus ça change....

(The pedestrian overpass at Magazine Street, near Micro Center, has also been known to be deadly to overheight vehicles.)

In the late 70s, we called the ones going under Mass Ave "sardine cannings" for the way the tops were rolled back.
