A chorus of boos greeted Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter Tuesday during the opening of the city's new $6.7 million firehouse.
As he walked into the new energy efficient firehouse for a ribbon cutting ceremony, the boos from dozens of protesters from the union representing local firefighters could be heard.
Union members say they are upset at the mayor over a long running dispute for a new contract.
The city says the new firehouse is one of the only "green" stations in the city.
Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers says the station also offers additional rooms for community programming.
Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
