North End mess

This afternoon around 4:30 pm, the power went out at my office on Union Wharf. A quick survey of the neighborhood found Hanover Street jammed with fire trucks, and smoke pouring out of the street near Sovereign Bank. When I returned to Union Wharf, smoke was also pouring out of a manhole in our parking lot.

Apparently this was the third underground North End fire in less than 24 hours. According to the lunchtime crowd at Contrada's, there was a fire last night around 10 pm, and another one this morning.

The Madonna della Cava festival is supposed to start tomorrow night around Hanover and Battery Street. I hope NStar can fix the problem by then.

At least 16 NStar trucks of various kinds are parked all over Hanover Street. Fortunately none of them are on the blocks where Madonna della Cava is supposed to start in a few hours.
