  • Holy smokes! Looks like they are adding a swimming pool. I hope water levels start to recede.

  • Is there a large storm over there?

    Flooding everywhere, major highways shut down, schools evacuating all over.

  • It's a mess. The trains were slow, then stopped, then the expressways were closed. Luckily I go in early enough that the trains stopped after I was at the hospital but it was quite a storm.

    People must be on their best behavior (for Chicago anyway) because we've only had two trauma calls and only one of those was storm related.

  • I somehow missed this completely. I wonder how DeKalb is doing. I used to live there.

    Oak Park (that's another high school)
