The signboards along the Expressway say drivers should expect delays between 1 and 3 p.m. today as the president arrives in town for his "cancer moonshot" speech at the JFK Library.

Only thing is the speech is at 4 p.m. And then the officials White House schedule says he'll be staying in town for a Democratic National Committee reception at 6 p.m. We'll go out on a limb and assume that's not at the neighboring Bayside DoubleTree, so that probably means a motorcade somewhere downtown or in the Back Bay. And then he departs Boston at 7:10 p.m., which means still more traffic issues as he gets taken to Logan.

Goslings take advantage of puddle

Michael Spicher spotted some geese littles taking advantage of a puddle near the Expressway and the narrow end of Fort Point Channel that splits the South End from South Boston today. Amy Deveau, who lives nearby, though, is not liking the scene:

this stresses me out. I helped escort a family of geese under 93 and stopped traffic in both directions and when we all made it to the other side I burst into tears. I hope these lil guys make it back to the channel.
