If you're keeping score at home, us near north-siders are having a blast getting downtown.

A bus on fire has shut down Lakeshore and an abandoned school at Sheffield/Armitage has shut down brown/purple L trains. Ergo everybody and their cousin is trying to ride the red line. It's been a fun morning, glad I left early... If you're trying to get downtown, avoid the L and Lakeshore. Or stay up north.
