Rainy Day Commute on National Donut Day

Today is National Donut Day. Who knew that we had a national day to celebrate donuts? Actually, the day doesn't celebrate donuts - it was originally set up by the Salvation Army to honor the "Lassies" from World War I. But if you check out the information on, it is all about the donuts.

For this morning's rainy day commute, I took the P509 out of Grafton. We arrived to South Station at 8:20 a.m.

According to an article that ran on the front page of today's The Boston Globe, the new Blue Line cars have slippery seats. The seats were selected because they are harder to vandalize. While a lot of the people interviewed for the article didn't like the new seats, some people actually prefer them to the old Blue Line car's seats. The new seats are wider.

Stay dry today and stay cool over the weekend. It sounds like it could be our first "summer" scorcha!
