No shelter rule for Medford so I went to work. Keep your head down folks.

Quiet in Belmont.  I have seen a couple of motorcycle police drive by.  We go to the Watertown Target and a diner just down the street every week.  It's only about 1/2 mile away.

Up here in Peabody nothing crazy happening, seems to be pretty localized to the city and immediately surrounding towns.

Magnificent Muffin in West Medford is open in case anyone from the Medford area ever goes there.  Great muffins!

Anonymous just put up a good point on Twitter. Don't post, Twitter or otherwise, names of streets or landmarks regarding police activity/movement as the suspect may have access to social media and could use that information.

I've been listening to the police scanner. In the last half hour the cops have had to tell the media to pull their head out of there ass. The dirtbag in question is posting online that he is going to kill everyone to avenge the cops killing his brother. Anyone the cops run across is getting a shakedown and told to GTFO. They are getting a bus in there to evac residents they know are not part of this. SWAT is tightening the noose. The bomb squad is looking at every tiny thing as a possible explosive.

If you can GTFO the area. Seriously, there are bombs and shiat and there is gonna be some airborne lead real soon. The cops are doing everything they can to escort people out of the area. Take them up on it.

I'm just on the other side of the river, about 1/4 mile away.  Nothing to report other than no traffic out on the street and I couldn't get a cup of coffee this morning.

I'm watching local news (Fox 25). The cameras have been off for about half an hour. So we're in audio-only mode, interviewing people connected, and so on. One of the guy's wrestling buddies is on right now. Boston Police have also asked that no one broadcast any police locations or addresses.

TOM KLUDT8:46 AM EDT, FRIDAY APRIL 19, 2013
Police on Friday morning surrounded a home in Watertown, Mass., the same suburban Boston community where authorities engaged in a firefight with 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the two suspects in the deadly marathon bombings. The older Tsarnaev was killed in the firefight, while Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remains at large.

Footage of police surrounding the home is being shown live on Fox News Channel. Anchors on the network described what they believed to be the sounds of explosives and gun fire. It is unclear if police were cornering Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Bomb trucks were seen arriving at the house.

technically not, but its REALLY close to Belmont and Watertown, so I would just stay home.  Unless you live outside the 95 and 93 corridor just stay home

Stay home. He'd have to go through Cambridge to get to Arlington from NH.
