It's this: https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7223855 ... a=!3m1!1e3" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The last customer I think was a food business -- getting rice or something...? Good to hear that the outage is temporary.

The Bushwacker was spotted pulling trash back to Fresh Pond at midnight last night. An hour-ish before they were shuffling aggregate cars, presumably for Kings at the end of the line.
