grade crossing work/street closure coming soon

According to signs on 99th St. near Walden/Wood/Metra station, 99th will be closed for construction for 10 days starting at 6 a.m. on Wed. 4/21/21.
This will be grade crossing work. When they say 10 days, they're usually accurate.

non sequitur Friday

A tribute to a long-lived and profilic jazz artist who has been underappreciated. She's one of my favorite musicians and composers - Toshiko Akiyoshi.
