"Hey everyone! I wasn't following for a little while. This is great to know! I will get in touch with some folks I know looking for a place to garden and follow up with those of you who have posted that you have some space to share! Thanks!"

"Interesting that a number of people with space have responded, but no one who wants to garden that doesn't have space. Have you had a chance to let your wait list people know?"

Car alarm going off for 4.5 hours

Posted on July 15, 2010 at 4:29pm 1 Comment

There has been a car alarm going off a few houses away from mine (on Wyman Street) since noon today. It is 4:30 now. THREE different people have called the police, and one person told an officer passing by in his car. No one has come to check it out. We are going completely crazy! It is too hot to close the windows.

It is a dark green SUV, license plate F63765.

Where is the BPD?
