Loud bang!

Anyone else hear a loud explosion around 4:30AM near Grand Ave and Ashland this morning?

    no

  • From Fox 32:

    "The Chicago Fire Department responded to a van fire on the near West Side Tuesday morning.

    "The fire broke out around 6 a.m. near Carroll and Paulina in a back alley. Air FOX flew over the scene as firefighters worked to put out the flames.

    "It is not yet clear if anyone was injured in the fire. The Chicago Police Department says the incident is under investigation."

Cicadas??

We have cicadas swarming everywhere, making their creepy noise and clinging to the side of the building. This isn't a cicada year so how come they are out and here?

  • Even though the neighborhood is new they somehow bury themselves deep underground for years and come up. They'll die off once they mate. What a life, to sleep for 17 years, mate, and die!
    I think they're only around for 6 weeks or so. Hopefully they'll mate ASAP for you :)

  • Two of them were mating on my window screen and when I flicked the screen one of them let off this piercing scream that I will never forget. It sounded like a baby pig squealing for it's life. Totally freaked me out. They drive bomb me on my 5 th floor balcony it's horrible!

Mariachi band still playing at 11:13pm

Isn't there a noise ordinance time limit between 9pm-8am? Some place behind Noble St I want to say is throwing a house backyard party outside with a live mariachi band. I can hear them and I live 2 blocks over and in the back of of the building and can clearly hear them. Why has the police not stopped them and is this not annoying any of my other neighbors?? I can't sleep!!

    I live on Noble near the park and I didn't hear anything but do sympathize w you. Since I live by the park, we often have to put up w people playing ball and/or drinking well past midnight. The police will do nothing unless we call them so I suggest you do the same next time especially when you have to get up early the next day.

  • The band was pleasant and understandably it was a Saturday night.... I'm sure we all had party's or attended one that carried on till midnight at one time in our lives... Instead of me complaining I decided to sit on my balcony with a glass of wine and enjoy it...
