Good morning, everyone, it's 9:26am. Today is day #2 of the St. Hyacinth's carnival. Yesterday, being the first day, was pretty calm. Which is good. We'll see how today goes. It opens at 6pm again, but lets out at 11 tonight, instead of 10, like last night. My special coverage, which will be in this color, will go from 9:30 until midnight. To prevent myself from falling asleep, I'll take a nap around 4. Anyway, it's hot out today. Highs in the low 90s with a mix of clouds and sun. So, here's crime for today.

9:30pm - Special coverage of the carnival has started. The boundaries are, again, Oakdale to the north, Ridgeway to the west, Schubert to the south and Central Park to the east. This will go for the rest of the night. This will allow me to monitor any and all activity around the immediate vicinity of the carnival much easier. I'm paying particular attention to when the carnival lets out at 11. Unless there's anything major (large groups loitering, fights, gunshots, etc.) elsewhere in the area, don't except to see calls outside of the boundary area.
10:50pm - The carnival lets out in 10 minutes. I'm standing by...
11:00pm - It should be letting out now. Listening for anything.
11:13pm - So far, so good.

12:00am - Alright, I'm off to dream land. The carnival seems to have been peaceful again tonight, so I will not do any special coverage on it tomorrow. Good night, everyone.
