By Ron Newman - 3/13/20 - 1:09 pm

The Boston Flower and Garden Show, which opened on Wednesday without any Mass. Horticultural Society staff or volunteers, will close tonight at 6 pm. It will not reopen for the scheduled final two days this weekend.

Anyone who bought a ticket in advance, but who has not yet attended the show, will receive a refund.

At 11:45 p.m. yesterday, Mass. Horticultural Society President James Hearsum e-mailed supporters that society staffers and "an army of loyal volunteers" will not be attending the Boston Flower and Garden Show, scheduled to open this morning, because of Covid-19 concerns. Read more.

Open Dunkin' Donuts at the World Trade Center

TrueNE_79 reports that the Dunkin' Donuts at the World Trade Center is open this morning, unlike all the other ones from South Station to across Fort Point Channel.

Snope reports Tags in Porter Square has plenty of salt - and parking spaces - but is running low on shovels.

Two Silver Line buses, one dead

Although that would be something to see. Ben Rey captured the scene at World Trade Center around 5:10 p.m., when an inbound bus kicked the bucket and another inbound bus was forced to squeeze around it to keep the Silver Line from becoming a Red Line on rubber.

Commonwealth Pier

It's hard to imagine how many miles of train tracks used to exist within Boston city limits (let alone how few will be left once Harvard gets around to ripping out the Allston yard). Here we see the train yard in front of Commonwealth Pier in South Boston, sometime shortly after World War I. Today, the pier is better known as the World Trade Center and the tracks have mostly been replaced by highway ramps, parking lots and surface roads. Nearby is Fan Pier, named for the way the train tracks there fanned out toward the water.

The Back Bay used to have its own large train yard - since replaced by the Prudential Center and the Massachusetts Turnpike:

Tug, tug, tugTug, tug, tug

The Theodore Too normally plies the harbor of Halifax, but came down to Boston this weekend to help do, um, something related to the annual delivery of the Christmas tree Nova Scotia gives us as thanks for our help after a disastrous ship explosion in Halifax during World War I.

When we got to the World Trade Center around 3:30, it was kind of odd: Theodore sat there grinning despite the fact there was absolutely nobody in the strange city to keep him company - we'd thought he'd be open for a tour then. Oh, well. The kidlet really wanted to see him and we did - and we got to marvel at the SimCity nature of the South Boston waterfront ("I can see all the blue squares," she said - think she plays enough SimCity?)
