Another one bites the dust 'er the bridge

October  19. 2007 - This truck hit the bridge at River Street (Route 85) this afternoon. It was heading north out of Hopkinton, apparently not paying attention to any of the low bridge signs en-route.  Commuter and freight trains were held up along the tracks and then put under speed restrictions to cross the bridge.  The bridge usually sees a truck misjudge the height every several weeks.

Tractor Foliage

October 19, 2007 - The tractor sits idly waiting its' next assignment at Chestnut Hill Farm.

Take a Foliage Ride around town

October 19, 2007 - You don't have to go to New Hampshire or the Berkshires to see the foliage.  Check out Southborough's hidden roads and byways that you may not have taken in a while.  This scene is from earlier this week at the bend on the north end of Chestnut Hill Road.  If you criss-cross the roads of Deerfoot, Parkerville, Middle, Route 85, Rte 30 and drive along Central Street the beauty of the reservoir provides a colorful mini-foliage trip right in your own town.  Course then you can go to any of the town's recreation or conservation areas, park the car and take a hike.  Bring a camera.  To find out more about the open spaces of Southborough Check out www.solf.org

This event has been a tradition at the Aggie school for years.  It is a haunted hayride that is a fundraiser for the Senior class.  Money is used for student activities, the yearbook and the senior prom.  Underclassmen also raise funds through their snack booth.  It is a huge event with people driving long distances to wait in line for the rides.  All the scenes through the fields and woods are done by the Aggie students.  It's an awesome hayride through acres of fields and woodlands on the Aggie School's 350 acres. Come early and have a great time!!
