Of Sweet Things and Boston Firsts

Headed to Boston with Charter Bus Boston and don’t know how to dress as you’re wondering what the temperature is?

Look over to the 60-story John Hancock Tower. The colored lights on top of the old building show solid blue when it’s clear; flash blue when clouds are due; solid red when there’s rain ahead and flashing red when it’s snowing. (Flashing red during summer means the Red Sox game is rained out).
From hot and cold to something sweet, an interesting thing to note is we’re always advised that too many sweets can be bad for us. Well, on January 15, 1919, Boston Harbor ran brown when the Boston Molasses Disaster occurred in the North End.
