Found: Silver house keys on ring

Just now I found a set of silver house keys on the ground, at the southwest corner of Lawrence and Washtenaw. Please let me know if you've lost your keys! They have a Sears rewards card on the same ring.

  • You may be able to call sears with the rewards card number and find out who they belong to and/or how to return them. Maybe not but probably worth a try!

  • There were a bunch of signs up in the little park right near the Francisco brown line station (Francisco/Manor intersection) of somebody looking for keys lost nearby.

explosion in Lincoln Square last night?

Hey - I got myself signed up for EveryBlock this morning to see if anyone had an answer for this...

Right as I was going to bed last night around midnight there was (what sounded like) an explosion. I live by Lawrence & Rockwell. It sounded like a deep loud boom and rattled my windows. A couple people on twitter nearby reported car alarms going off.

I reported it to 911 before going to bed. Anyone else hear this? Anyone know what happened?

  • Feihong EveryBlock developer, Lincoln Square dweller

    Man, curious to know what that sound was. By the way, changed the title to say "Lincoln Square" instead of "Lincoln Park"

  • Probably a transformer blew. They can create pretty loud explosions when they decide to fail.

  • John M. Holden John Holden, 20+year Uptown resident

    Hi There. I have hosted many foreign students before and it was a great experience. I have made excellent friends all over the world and would love to hear more about your program.

Water pipe leak / small ice volcano Rockwell & Lawrence

It appears a water service pipe is leaking under the pavement in from of Jack & Ginger's dog grooming /boarding /dog walking storefront on the southeast corner of Rockwell & Lawrence. There's a small water volcano bubbling up right at the curb on Lawrence there, and a big, spreading ice patch- about 12 ft. square. (If it's not a broken water line, then one of the dogs has a REAL serious bladder issue...)

It appears a water service pipe is leaking under the pavement in from of Jack & Ginger's dog grooming /boarding /dog walking storefront on the southeast corner of Rockwell & Lawrence. There's a small water volcano bubbling up right at the curb on Lawrence there, and a big, spreading ice patch- about 12 ft. square. (If it's not a broken water line, then one of the dogs has a REAL serious bladder issue...)

Seriously, be careful walking there, it's a skating rink.

It doesn't appear to be a major leak, like a broken water main, so maybe it's just a smaller service line.

(You know, it's got to be a real pain in the butt to be a City water dept. maintenance person in freezing weather. I sure as heck wouldn't want to dig 6 feet down in frozen mud / ice to fix a pipe spraying water..... hats off to these folks. I know they have had a TON of busted pipes this year.)

  • Did you call 311? They do often respond quickly to water-line-leaking- on-the-road complaints in my experience.

  • Actually when the temps are below zero a broken water main has less water. It could actually be that. Definitely call in to 311
