Boston Beware!

It’s been pretty hot this summer but it’s finally starting to cool off and my energy is starting to return. However, while it is “technically” better biking weather, for me biking is going to get worse before it gets any better. That’s because I live in a city where I pass no less than 5 colleges on my way to work (more depending on my route) and 80% of apartment leases have a start date of September 1st. Yep, that’s right, it’s…

Moving Day

In all this mess, just try to remember that at least you’re not as stuck in the traffic jam. And be afraid of U-Hauls. Very afraid.

“Take Storrow Drive, it will be faster”. Hehe. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve heard that. I miss Boston.

Yeah, it usually comes just before they discover (the hard way) that the truck doesn’t fit under the overpass. And yes, U-Haul rental trucks are the scariest class of vehicle on the road.

Be very very very afraid of Uhauls! Giant blindspots plus young inexperienced driver in a hurry= don’t get anywhere near it. And anyone with out of state plates can be counted on to drive unpredictably and know nothing about sharing the road with bikes. If at all possible, plan routes that don’t go through Allston.

Harvard and MIT tend to be more decorous about crap on the sidewalk, but there are still lots of people in town these couple of weeks from places where bikes are not common, and they have no idea how to drive around them, plus they’re likely to be completely lost.

Disturbingly that picture very accurately describes what Boston is like during moving time.

Good: you are depicting cars and trucks nicely. (Remember when you said you can’t draw cars?)
Bad: cars and trucks are depicted.

My brothers & I are from California but one of them and his wife (who works at Harvard) live in Brookline. I thought they were kidding about “Boston Moving Day.” Thanks for the eye-opening post! =)
