Morning eclipse, with jet

Adam Balsam was among the many people who got up early to get a good view of the eclipse, which in his case meant a trip to Wollaston Beach.

Boat on Wollaston Beach

Trees weren't the only things the nor'easter winds were pushing around overnight. Josh Ormsby reports on his commute along Quincy Shore Drive this morning:

On my way to work I came upon this sad sight. Wind and waves had combined to drive these boats on to Wollaston Beach. Little damage was apparent and a couple of the owners were on hand to figure out what to do next.

John Daley wonders what bright brain at the state decided summer would be a good time to renovate Wollaston Beach:

I think the winter might have been a more appropriate time to tear things up, but what do I know?
