Burglar Alarm On Wolcott

Good morning, everyone, it's 9am. Today, I'm monitoring 14 for everyone. I figured I would on this bitterly cold Thursday since I have yet another snow day from school today, and I have another one tomorrow (schools may reopen, but school bus service is suspended until Monday). These snow days are the last ones CPS has had since 1999, 12 years ago. And because I was only 6 years old at the time, I don't remember it. Anyway, tomorrow, I will be monitoring the Near South Side community, and then the West Garfield Park neighborhood this weekend. I have an event on Saturday morning to go to, so I will begin monitoring at 2pm and doing it until midnight, then Sunday, I'll monitor it from 8am-2pm. I'm not monitoring 25 again until Monday.
