Doot, doot, doot, lookin’ out my front door


The view from Cambridge, MA. Complete travel ban. No cars, MBTA shut down. Cormet and I think it’s great. Last night the corner grocery looked like a going-out-of-business sale. Neighbors were happily trading items (“Wait, you have kids! You need the last rotisserie chicken!”). My friend Bill, learning to bake bread, came to my door with a hot baguette wrapped in a tea towel.

Later today my neighbors and I will descend on the street with the snowblower and lots of shovels. I have snow pants, so I’m hoping the kids across the street aren’t too jaded to help me build a snowman.
