One recent morning, I took a side trip down to the Old Port. There was a time when almost every street in the city was covered with these cobblestones. I certainly do remember Dad, having to navigate Commercial Street with its seemly four(not marked) lanes of stones and double railroad tracks. Not an an easy feat in nice weather. Can you imagine running a city snowplow down that street in a snow storm? The next street up, Wharf Street, is a peaceful walk during the day with shops, some fine restaurants and pubs aplenty. From 10PM -2AM on the weekends, it’s another matter. It’s packed and easy to find trouble. Maybe, a drop into a wine bar this afternoon would be nice, especially since we are at hour 29 without power. What a storm!
