Pilsen burning

For the second time in just over a year my home is filled with smoke. A step outside punches the senses with the odor of burning plastic. Sirens are ringing out, overlapping each other in creepy round and all the lights have halos around them.

But nothing on the news as of yet.

So, what gives?

    Do what any good Chicagoan would do and find some way to blame it on Milwaukee.

    You’d be surprised how how much smoke bellows from a single burning dumpster packed to the lid with trashbags… noxious, but hardly newsworthy. 2 cents

    Just so long as it’s not another “rag factory”.

    Man that stunk the joint up last night. I was really torn about getting out of the house with the chicklet.

    Turns out it was pretty news worthy – http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/cst-nws-outage25.html.

    I still blame Milwaukee.
