Good afternoon, everyone, it's 2pm. It's a mostly cloudy day, in the upper 80s, at the moment. It's supposed to be about 90 degrees with sun, clouds and storms. Hopefully they won't be like last night's. Anyway, today is the last day I'm blogging until Monday. I'm going on blog vacation. There will be two posts up a day, however, about different topics relating to crime and what not. But there will be no live-police blogging from me. ProdigalOne may do some blogging, depending on how busy she is. So, with that, here's crime for this afternoon and evening.
