I work at Tufts University in Medford. Blasts have been heard from campus. Everything is shut down and anyone that didnt check email before going to work is being sent home.

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

Awesome muffins but those ladies are mean!

Hi! Cambridge farmer here. I live in the Wellington-Harrington neighborhood just down the street from the suspects' apartment. Some residents have been evacuated due to the possability of explosives in their apartment. As I see and hear things I will give updates.

\currently up at his place in NH
\\he's a former farker, fwiw

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


Actually not - he takes 93 to 60, it dumps him like two blocks from work in downtown Arlington.  But I'm guessing the mrs. will make him stay, she kinda got freaked the fark out on Monday.

Quiet in Billerica, though I'm not far from Hanscom field and a big jet just took off.  Very low rumble that went on for almost a minute.  Kinda rare these days.

I'd like to know this too. I've been with the investigation since they first announced the shooting at M.I.T. so I'm not sure if you were trying to catch me up, or if you're saying you recently heard more.

Blasts like explosions?


Yeah explosions were heard early on. Rumor is it's the police detonating bombs, but beyond that I don't know anything.

Arlington is not on lockdown, according to Boston.com, and the A-town Town Manager.  Oh, and you can get to Arlington w/o going through Cambridge

Stay safe Farkers!


Here in Malden there's barely few cars on the road. I didn't know anything was going on until I had walked to the T station, along with a few other people. Amazingly some of my co-workers did drive in to work. I work at a financial company, it's not like we're essential workers that need to go there. I'm surprised my company didn't just announce the office would be closed, as it's right in Boston.

I've always wondered if it was a franchise or not too, seen that one before on my way to Davis.  As far as I know, Joan is the owner of the one in West Medford and shes never once mentioned the other.  She gets there super early every day to make her muffins fresh.  She is really nice, you should try that shop out.

Also, the West Medford Magnificent Muffin reminds you that they're not the one in Teele when you call. I guess they get a lot of confused people.

Oh, yeah, that makes sense. That was probably police doing controlled explosion. In an earlier thread I believe we overheard at least 3-4 callouts regarding such throughout Watertown on the scanner.

Ah, ok. I haven't visited in years so I'm a bit forgetful of the area. They're probably too busy watching the news to pick up the phone.
