Midnight Downtown Gloucester Snow Emergency Photo From Fred Bodin

Photo taken just now at 12 Midnight. As you can see, the Snow Emergency parking ban is working. Later, the streets will be scraped clean by our DPW. This will not be a big dumping of snow. I still have to drive home, but once I get to the Rockport line, the streets will be almost dry. That’s Rockport. 
On another topic, I just happen to have a CD playing of Jonathan Richmond and the Modern Lovers, which I talked about with Katy Downer and her friend at the bar at Seaport Grille October 15th, while shooting the transport of a section of the 460 feet tall wind turbine from barge to construction site, which is on on GMG. Kathy knew about this musician, which most folks do not. Here’s a link to get you started: http://www.allmusic.com/album/roadrunner-roadrunner-the-beserkley-collection-mw0000469273
Truth is, I liked this guy’s music two decades ago and still do. "If you’re in love with Massachusetts, if you’re in love with Modern Music, turn your radio on." Only this guy could talk about riding on 128 and being in love with a shopping center.
