Like the swallows in Capistrano, the "birds" are back at BU

Along Storrow Drive there is this sort of bi-level grassy green embankment right at Boston University.

As soon as it is spring and the thermometer registers anything over 65 degrees, all the college girls and boys swarm the grassy banks to sunbathe within feet of this major roadway.

Let me tell you, this has the same effect on cars as that big pothole I mentioned earlier.

Drivers get distracted by all the skin glare and start swerving all over the place and into each other and slow down to about 25 miles an hour. This creates an inbound traffic mess that is often compounded by afternoon Red Sox games and then made even worse in late May/early June when the moving trucks begin jamming themselves under the BU bridge.

Hubcaps a-flying, horns a-honking - it's definitely springtime here in Beantown.
