Helicopters, Hyde Park
Liz called out to me from her office around noon. She asked if I had seen the email that went out to our neighborhood email list. Side note: we have a great email list for our block, and our neighbors are always posting up helpful news/info.
Today, this was one of the messages:
Stay inside and stay safe!
On seeing this, I ran downstairs. Bob was over working on the house, and I had been hearing him going in/out of both the front and back kitchen doors.
After making sure all the doors were closed and locked, that’s when I realized Bob was working on framing out our hall window. And there was this giant, enormous opening in the side of our house. So much for locking up everything!
I did a little digging around online, and found this Twitter thread. Turns out it was an armed robbery of a T-Mobile store that led to a high-speed chase, that then ultimately ended in Hyde Park (just about a block and a half from where we live).
A few moments later, Liz and Bob looking up to see if they can see any of the helicopters overhead.
Ultimately, the helicopters went away and I think they found all the suspects. Made for an exciting afternoon.
