Good evening, everyone, it's 5pm. School was on a bit on the chaotic side today, but the kids weren't nuts. This blizzard coming in has everyone and their mother worried and/or scared. Speaking of school, ALL Chicago Public Schools will be CLOSED tomorrow due to the severe blizzard coming in. This is the first time since 1999, which is 12 years ago. And I'm very glad the schools are closed, and not just because of a snow day, but it is not worth anyone's safety to travel in white-out conditions in nearly 2 feet of snow. So I hope everyone is prepared for the blizzard by now. DO NOT GO OUTSIDE unless you absolutely have to. Stay in and stay safe. Here's crime (and blizzard calls) for this evening.
5:26pm - Gang disturbance. 3700 W Fullerton. Five males flashing gang signs. Out in THIS kind of weather?!? They're NUTS.

12:00am - Alright, everyone, I'm going to go. I'll be back at 8am, and I will lay out my monitoring schedule for tomorrow then. But there will be limited monitoring due to all of the snow and cold temps that shall probably keep the radio slient. So, goodnight, everyone. Be safe!!
