Homeschooling Group/Drop-off

Is there anyone homeschooling kids in the middle school to high school age range who lives in the Edgewater//Edgewater Beach/Andersonville/Uptown/Rogers Park areas?

I was thinking about starting an informal drop-off at Edgewater Library (Broadway and Elmdale) where kids can do their school work, play chess, talk, etc. for two or three days (possibly five) each week--maybe four to six hours each day. If you're interested, let me know. (I haven't decided on the hours yet.)

Once interest is gauged, I'll host an informational meeting at the library.

Change in Tap Water Smell/Taste?

Has anyone else noticed a slight change in the smell/taste of tap water in the last few days? It's hard to peg but its somewhere between chlorine, a faint rotten egg, and iron.

  • NYCtoRP NewToRP

    No, I only drink bottle. I never smell my water. Is there a problem occurring?

  • ctc Yes!

    City water department called and told me to check my water heaters anode rod. I checked and my water heater has a stainless steel tank and no anode rod. Spoke with the water reclamation district who assured me that the emc pumping had no connection to my tap water. The tap water odor has since subsided so I suspect it had something to do with the Chicago water supply treatment...if that's the case, here's hoping that it was more helpful than harmful.
