Good evening, everyone, it's 7:24pm. Today's been a good day, but it's been really snowy. I think we got at least two inches, which is good because it's not that bad out there. Anyway, I rode the CTA's Holiday Train this evening, and it was just magical. You could really feel the Christmas spirit. It was so much fun to see the kids being so happy with their parents. But enough of the mushy stuff. I'm monitoring tomorrow until my dinner. Speaking of monitoring, there will be limited blogging on Wednesday and Thursday. On Wednesday, I've got the CAPS Beat meeting for 2523 over at Copernicus on Milwaukee to go to (it's at 7pm), then I've got a block club meeting Thursday to attend. After that, on Friday, I have to stay after school for a Student Government meeting. Here's crime for this evening.
