Greater Boston woke up to a frightful scenario this morning as our protective forces sought, and continue to seek, the remaining suspect in Monday's marathon bombings. The city and its surrounding suburbs have essentially shut down, and all residents are urged to remain indoors until notified otherwise. All MBTA service is suspended and businesses have been requested to remain closed. Stay safe, friends, and stay tuned.
