Now just for the sake of talking some CPS closure news, I would like to share this Sun-Times article which not only discusses how many Chicago Alderman are unhappy with CPS closing schools. The article also discusses how people are coping with this "polar vortex".

How are you coping with the cold weather, so far? 

Also Ald. Anthony Beale of the 9th has information on warming centers around the city, but also refer to 311. Ald. Beale also had a community meeting to be held Tuesday night, however, that meeting has been cancelled.

In addition if you live near Pastor Corey Brooks' church on 6620 S. King Drive he's operating a warming center as well. Let us know who else is operating warming centers.
