Last Saturday morning, we awoke to see that, finally, the City of Somerville was repaving Summer Street.
Thing was, the car was parked on Summer Street on Friday night. And was no longer there.
Also conspicuous in its absence? A sign warning of imminent towing on a Saturday morning.
We looked and looked. This is what we found:
Oh, wait! Here's one!
And we did find this, on the opposite side of the street. You know, the side you can't ever park on?
In the intersections, and about a block down (uphill) Summer, there were these blue barricades.
Just in case you were, you know, planning on parking in the intersection.
On further inspection, these signs informed us we were screwed:
Of course, they weren't anywhere near where anyone was actually going to park.
And they weren't there the night before, either, which is when the car was parked.
I guess Somerville needed another source of income to tide them over til it starts snowing.
Oh well...they're $95 (cash only) to the good, thanks to us.
