    Now that you mention it, I seem to recall the bright full moon low in
    the sky that night as well, with Boston's darkened skyline silhouetted
    against it, so it probably wasn't raining or sleeting. I'm likely
    confusing that Massachusetts Avenue traffic jam with another (they
    were and probably still are quite frequent during the rush hours in
    Cambridge in fall and winter).
