    That video of Metra hitting a car is horrifying. I understand the instinct to try to save your car, but if you’re stuck on train tracks, get out!! She’s very lucky to be okay.

    The people removing chairs from the street are heroes. Some people think the constant snow means they get to own a public parking space all winter.
