Best of luck to the Gages. It is always difficult to see good neighbors leave our community. But enjoy the warmth and sunshine of North Carolina where winters are of the gentler sort.

Connie it was a great crowd! I never thought I'd be able to get that movie but thanks to my granddaughter who loves it, I pressed and we did get Frozen. I love the way the little girls were dressed in frozen costumes. Just an amazing showing of people from all over and all ages just enjoying the night.

Right in front of us three little boys snuggled up to Anna it was so interestingly . Was my first time seeing the film, I loved it.

Interesting, flattering, if not entirely accurate, new video on Evanston 2014 by Chicago magazine.

Just returned home from seeing "Frozen". There was a outstanding turn out for the movie. It was fun listening to the children sing along during the movie to the songs. And having Elsa and Anna (the queen & princess) present at the event was well received by the children. Lots of photo opportunities for the little ones. What a fantastic idea.
So thank you City of Evanston and Ridgeville Park District

that's what I thought but one came little too long after the other to have been anything other than a coincidence so who knows hopefully they're all fixed

Thanks VERY MUCH for the explanation Ann ~ the frantic shouting under the viaduct at 1:30 AM now has an explanation, too! Why were there so many water main breaks at the same time? Was it a "cascading" phenomenon, where one caused the next?

Good bye Evanstonians. We closed on our house this morning and are now residing in North Carolina. It was a nice 17 year run for myself and a lifetime for Tad. We wish the best for each and every one of you. We'll miss you, but the snow, not so much!

There was a main break on the 10” water main on Dodge Avenue directly under the CTA bridge. This repair was complicated because of a CTA storm sewer syphon located in the same area. The 10” water main has several 90-degree bends in it to go around the syphon structures and the break was due to the 90-degree bend coming apart from the water main. The water at this location was shut off at approximately 1:30 am and water was turned back on at approximately 8:30 am. This shut down affected the properties on Dodge from Mulford south to Brummel, as well as the 4 unit buildings east of Dodge with the addresses 215 – 221 Dodge (Dodge Village).
There is still a water main break that needs to be repaired in front of 337 Dodge. Crews are starting to excavate, but the water won’t be shut off until noon (as requested by the Levy Center) unless the break gets worse. The water shut off for this repair will affect the properties along Dodge from Kirk to Mulford.

Good news...Wrigley the dog has been located. Had all kinds of people looking for him. Our friends are glad that he will be safely home in a few minutes.

If you've ever had a companion animal go missing, you know how scary it is.

Missing dog alert:

Wrigley, 95 pound curly golden retriever went missing this afternoon
Very, very sweet but he is a big guy who might bark at you at first if he doesn't know you
Missing from just west of Main and Dodge
Visitor accidentally did not latch gate and Wrigley went exploring

The family used to live near Oakton and Ridge so he may have gone walking there. He does have a collar with his name and his vet's phone number.

Please call 312-343-9432 or post here if you have seen him. Thank you...the family (including three kids) is frantically looking for him.

Rogert Parks Bike Racks:


Here's a nice article about new fun bike racks coming to Rogers Park, with photos of all the cool bike racks we have been seeing around Chicago. Just took a bike ride yesterday into downtown Skokie, and the bright blue bike racks with a stylized S are very clever and eye catching. Evanston's racks, however, are the most boring piece of street furniture ever. Don't get me started on the DOZENS of beautiful new benches throughout Skokie. Why, they must have people who live and work there and who might like to sit on an outside bench and enjoy all the new landscaping full of flowers.

At 1 AM my family and I were jolted awake by a very loud motor noise. I called 311 and they couldn't locate it . 1:30 it resumed and I called 311 again then they told me that there was work going on because of a broken water main so I assume that the engine was a sump pump? Oh there it goes again...

Shabby chic plant stand holds six plants in great need of spray painting.
It's going to be behind my garage soon so if you'd like it I will put it out for you. Let me know

Thank you Mike Perlman. Its timing does help explain the stupid decision. More constructively, is there any mechanism that could be used to reality-check decisions like this?

The only special event that comes to mind is one of the early annual recycling events that was held in the rear parking lot of James Park near the foot of Mt. Trashmore. This was at least 4 years ago; traffic lining up was staged southbound in the west parking lane of Dodge and stretched all the way to Oakton and beyond.
