Tornado Sirens, Logan Square

While we were home last night, about 30 minutes after I got home… we heard the tornado sirens going off in the distance. For whatever reason, I felt fine staying where we were (third story of a large, brick building)… but Liz felt strongly that we needed to head to lower ground. And so, we grabbed the two cat carries…

Bird on a Bird

I’m seeing double here – four birds! Spotted this on my way to work on Friday, and it was like a little ray of sunshine. Totally made my day. Related: Geocaching for the First Time: Logan Square

Bird on a Bench, Logan Square

It may be the shorter walk to the El, or it may just be Logan Square as a whole – but I tend to see a lot less street art and graffiti on my walks to work anymore. When I lived in Bucktown, I walked a stretch of North Avenue down to the Milwaukee/Damen/North trisection, and always seemed to spot…

Logan Square Farmers Market, First Day, 2010

After breakfast at our favorite place (Lula’s), Liz and I headed over to check out the first official day of the Logan Square Farmers Market. Near the Milwaukee/Logan corner, looking East. The morning was pretty much perfect – lots of sun, and a constant breeze. Though the market officially opens at 10AM, there were already a lot of folks wandering…

That Ambulance Driver is Going Crazy

Yesterday morning, as I was working on the computer I heard an ambulance slowly circle the block. The alarm came on and stayed on for a while, and then it just went away. A minute or so would go by, and the alarm would go off again. It sounded like the ambulance driver had gone crazy, turning the thing on…

On the Way to Work

Since we moved in to our apartment, there’s been this incredibly large hole in the street, about a half a block away from us. Oftentimes, when we’re driving and looking for a parking spot… we’ll end up having to slowly drive past this thing, and it’s daunting. Cars are parked on the street, and there’s not a lot of room…

Fun Morning

I was writing up a blog post this AM, and stopped before finishing to head to the shower. It was bright enough from the sunlight in there, so I didn’t bother with turning on the light. By the time I got out, I realized that the power was out in the kitchen (coffee maker was off, fridge was silent). After…

Tree in Bloom, Logan Square

A few days ago, I spotted this tree on my walk home from the Logan Blue Line stop. All along Logan Boulevard, more and more green is appearing on the trees. Yesterday, on the way in to work, I stopped to take a few more photos of the same tree. Its petals are opening up, and my guess is that…

Strange Signs, Logan Square Blue Line Stop

On the way to work yesterday morning, I spotted two odd signs posted at the Logan Square Blue Line stop. At first, they looked like ordinary signs… but something about the dotted line caught my eye, and I paused for a closer look. This first sign was a puzzler. Still not sure what it’s asking, but it was definitely interesting….

Pastry Market at Logan Square Kitchen

After an early breakfast at Lula’s, Liz and I headed down Milwaukee to visit the Logan Square Kitchen. Though I’ve been in Logan Square a while, I hadn’t actually heard of LSK until fairly recently: it’s a commercial kitchen, available for rent on an hourly basis. But it also is a space for hosting events as well. Today was a…

Moving to a New Apartment (Under Construction), Logan Square

Our apartment management company recently asked us for a lease renewal fairly early this year (due by February for a May 1 lease). While we didn’t have any problems with renewing… given the early nature of the request, we decided to just go out and see what else was available. We called one apartment and got a tour of the…

A Note We Weren’t Meant to See

On the way to work Friday morning, I happend by a sign in the door of a building. This was one of those full-glass doors, with a solid black bar across the middle. It was the entryway to a residential set of apartments, and opened to a narrow corridory, with some stairs up. Usually, signs are posted in doors or…
