Storrowed truck on Storrow Drive

Bumper sticker: I survived Storrow Drive!

Bumper sticker in the field, on an actual bumper.

I got a bunch of these stickers printed as one way to thank folks who have graciously sent in contributions or even subscribed to UHub, because, really, we all share a love of a good storrowing, as long as it doesn't involve us. If you'd like one (or a more traditional Universal Hub sticker, which looks just like the logo up above, only larger and glossier and sticky on the back), here's how.

Stuck truck at the Grand Junction Bridge

Ethan McCoy got a grand view of the storrowed box truck at the train tracks by the BU bridge (where Storrow turns into Soldiers Field Road outbound) shortly before 5 p.m. today. Looks like the driver doesn't follow DCR on Twitter.

Chris in 02134 spotted a rental-truck driver who was alert enough not to rip the top of his box truck off on a bridge at Bay State Road, if not alert enough not to get onto Storrow Drive in the first place: Read more.

Near storrowing averted on Storrow Drive

Somebody hauling a boat learned first hand shortly after 1 p.m. that despite their names, the river roads aren't meant for watercraft. A Curiosity Machine chronicles his successful effort to avoid becoming the subject of a limerick like two Men from the Islands this week.

Ooh, and guess where he's from? Read more.

NBC Boston shows us what happens when a guy driving an oyster truck from Martha's Vineyard storrows on Memorial Drive at Mass. Ave. Compare to yesterday's Man from Nantucket storrowing and decide who did it better. And who can come up with a suitable limerick for our latest best Islands storrower?

Truck is wedged in real good - and looks like it dented the bridge, which is not something you usually see in your more mundane storrowings involving box trucks. State Police advise:

Roosevelt Circle (Route 28 over Route 93) is closed. Avoid this area for the remainder of evening.

If you're going to storrow, do it in style with an 18-wheeler: WBZ has some video of the driver doing the Backup of Shame after losing the top of his trailer at Mass. Ave. One point deducted for not having tons of stuff to spill all over the road, though.

Storrowed U-Haul

Schmitt spotted this storrowing aftermath being hauled down a Back Bay street today. What makes it a bit unusual is that it's an actual U-Haul - most recent storrowings have involved anything but U-Haul box trucks.

Storrowing in Roxbury in 1906

The folks at the Boston City Archives found an example of storrowing roughly 45 years before Storrow Drive was built: A cart driver who storrowed on trolley wires under the Washington Street el at Guild Street in Roxbury at 11:45 a.m. on May 12, 1906.

WGBH posted a news clip from 1985, when the driver of an out-of-state moving van executed a perfect storrowing: Jammed his truck under a bridge, which peeled the roof off his truck and left stuff scattered all over the road: Read more.
