A Public Service Announcement

Maybe you already knew this...but I didn't. It's illegal, in Massachusetts at least, to store propane "inside or on balconies above the first floor of any building or structure used for habitation".

Why did this come up? Well last week on that crazy hot day, there was a fire in Charlestown. A gas grill on a roof deck exploded. I was talking to Mike and he said that home owners insurance wouldn't cover it because the propane was illegally stored.

Here's the official statement from Mumbles.

So now you propane on the roof.

Propane on the roof. Bad. Got it.

Mumbles Menino. Also bad. Got that too.

Howie Carr. Good. Laughing in traffic.

Does this mean if I get the City of Boston to put it in an official statement.....I can get anything I want?

As if you need an official statement from the City of Boston to get/do anything you want.....
