The T canceled service on the Fairmount Line this morning after last night's train bumping near South Station. Instead, Fairmount riders were supposed to board substitute buses, only it seems there weren't enough buses to carry all those people. Just ask BostonGal:

Try to board HP train only to get turned away because you imbeciles didn’t add equipment.

Wolcott Square missing some traffic lights

That woman on the right with the dog who seems to be waving? What she was actually doing this afternoon, roving UHub reporter Jesse de Mello explains, was trying to do a bit of traffic directing as she stood next to the wires that are all that's left of one of Wolcott Square's antiquated traffic lights - which disappeared, once again.

Closing at the Cavan Cafe, 1406 Hyde Park Ave., seemed to be going normally early on Jan. 13: Sure, people kept pulling into the parking lot after 1 a.m. thinking they could get a drink even though the bar has a 1 a.m. closing time, but that's par for the course. Except this time, the cars kept coming, even as people were leaving from a large party inside. Men started bellowing at each other. And soon, fights were breaking out all over the parking lot and the two cops who initially responded had to call for reinforcements and whip out their pepper spray to try to get things under control.

Two crews shoveled snow at Readville station, yet pedestrians are still having trouble

Jake could only marvel at the amazing shoveling job done by separate Keolis and DCR crews at the steps down from Readville station to the sidewalk below: One cleared the stairs and another cleared a path along the sidewalk and yet, somehow, neither thought to make it so pedestrians could actually get from one to the other.

Keolis did promise to send down a crew to finish the job.
