Good morning, everyone, it's 7:08am. It's a mostly cloudy morning with temps in the mid 70s, and it'll get into the mid 80s with sunshine today. It finally, finally cooled off from the two weeks of this crazy heat wave that we had, and I couldn't be happier. The heat was killing me. I'm hoping all of you are well after the heat. Anyway, this week, I have a couple of community events to attend (finally!). Today there's a Community Garden party at our Community Garden at Milwaukee and Monticello from 3pm to 6pm, and then I have a CAPS Beat meeting in 14 on Thursday I'm attending. Also, tomorrow and Tuesday, I will not be blogging before 4pm, as I'm going to be at Wright College on both days registering for my classes in the fall. I'll be monitoring 25 today. Here's crime.
