"To steam you hear a little bit of the residual water follow of following and hitting the ground. But it's a hot Cup of water. You throw it in there. It turns to steam I resist thinking about this as I was walking in today. We posted that video Jen, and I said do it yourself. I mean, be careful be safe, blah, blah, blah, but you can survive this co put a Cup of watering, your microwave, get nice and bubbly hot Nagoya outside tonight tomorrow morning tomorrow day and videotape it and posted on my Facebook page. I want to see you, and it awesome is very fun. I think that people should do it with food coloring now make like purple team snow. Why you know, what happens what I hate? I hate to burst. Your your little bubble though. It's such a good idea. When you do that still turns white, oh, really? That's my recollection. I seem to remember. I guess it's the vapor h I dunno. I was about to say, it's the H two O not the die that I dunno. It's a my memory is you have a couple of blue water blue cloud. But you get you get a little blue water, and you get a white cloud. Wow. Which may be kind of fun. We also that year. Was it that year? No. It was one of the. One year not that long ago. I was in Minnesota, and it gets cold like this more often there than it does here. The temperatures in climates are similar, but maybe a little colder there. Anyway, I did the thing where you hammer and nail into a board with a banana, you leave a banana out overnight. It freezes so hard you can hammer and nail into a two by four. Oh, man. So we did that but WGN radio dot com or am I Facebook page? I'm WGM king. John post a video of your having fun with this cold weather throw a Cup of hot water in the air. Hold onto the cops the water in the air. I think that we oversell the terribleness of this. You can die. You could lose a finger your pets need to be taken care of you should not travel to places that might endanger yourself, but I know a lot of people that have to travel today, and my little editorial to my colleagues and broadcasting is I don't think we should be telling people don't go out. I think we should tell them what they will experience. If. They do. And then let them decide if you're on the road right now, you're not a fool you are there for a good reason. And so travel safely. And I tell you that it's going to be dangerously cold, and it could hit twenty two degrees below zero. And if you get a flat tire, or if you slide off the road, you're going to be stuck there. And it might be awhile before somebody gets, you know, all of that. And you've been decided to take the risks to drive safely, although I gotta tell you. There was somebody who came by me, and what I will describe again as the mystery Pinto. I was on that road yesterday in new buffalo Michigan route twelve and the town was actually busier than I thought it would be because that's kind of a vacation town new buffalo, but it's also got its own indigenous population and some of the bars and restaurants who went to we're busy. It was fun. But at night last night. There was nobody out there. And yesterday at one point when I was driving down the road just making my way through the blowing off of Lake Michigan, windy, snow and it just looks so desolate. I mean, it's kinda cool kind of scary. But you kinda scary. The speed limit on the road. I'm on is like forty miles an hour while I'm doing maybe thirty five or twenty five I'm going slow. I'm careful hands at ten and two knows against the windshield on that guy and. Right by me goes white pickup truck. And I mean that guy was doing sixty or something like that. He was going really fast. And I don't think his hair was on fire. I don't know what you know. And I just wonder how do those people know because you never see him in a ditch. Would you turn the corner? You never see him in a ditch. When you turn the corner, they seem to get away with it. How do they know that they're going to get away with it because I'm terrified? I'm very careful and cautious. And then. I don't understand that. I don't understand those people. I don't know if I was a passenger in that car. Maybe this has been you once upon a time, I would be terrified. I hate being a passenger. You're more the driver type. I like the control. I mean, go fast think about what we do here. Every day. I tell you guys all about the mayhem going on on the roads. It's kind of like, I don't know. One of those things that gives you anxiety them when you go to drive like, oh, hey, I just reported on fifty four accidents. And now I'm going to hop behind the wheel a gym, you're on WGN radio. Hi, jim. Hi there. I've done that water thing. Many times I'd done it during the day. I've done it at night with a flash. And that's impressive because against the dark. You know, the dark background you see it. But also if you blow bubbles regular bubble makers who make a bubble. It's all your molecule pick, and it freezes instantly. And when it lands Atlanta on a snow or a book, and it just as their own nice. It's like a little ice bubble. Now. It just fill. Yeah. Yeah. Just a little bit. Great. A good one. But the other is more impressive. If you do it at night. A little flash. It's really fantastic when you get done. Yeah. That's nice. Thank you for the heads up on that. That's a good reminder. I appreciate the call. Jim. Love your program guys. Okay. Bye. Bye. Yeah. Thanks for joining us. So if you do that to my Facebook page, WGN King John post your video. Hey kids. I got a great idea. It's going to be dark tonight. You're going to go out and blow bubbles and they're going to turn to little crystalline floating. Orbs that's kind of fun. John hot Cup of water that turns to vapor and cold weather is very cool says toy even cooler is blowing bubbles outside because you can watch the soap bubble freeze to a fragile crystal ball says Luke from Chicago. I think the most frightening scene I've ever been in in a car when the weather is like this. And again, my attitude is I think we have pitched hysteria. That's an overstatement we've pitched caution and you should be cautious. But I think what you do is you also sort of. So a field of anxiety out there that you don't need. Right. I know people do you who are absolutely upset. They're worried they're nervous about this cold. And do what you can do. Stay indoors run a thin stream of water open the cupboards under your sink do things that you do to protect your house yourself. But then it's okay. Native Americans slept on the prairie in conditions. Like this one hundred years ago, we'll we'll get through this. I think it's also cages to take a day off. Yeah. Everybody's so worried about work needing to be completed. And I don't think that everything's gonna end if there's one day where people who sit in cubicles have to stay home. You know, totally agree with you on that. I I think I think a lot of places tomorrow or Thursday. We'll probably do that, you know, let let people go home early or if it's at all possible for people to not work or work from home. Let him do that. I just keep getting E mail after E mail about different places that are closed. But you know, they say don't go out. Crazy it's dangerous. And then what do you do you? Go to target. And there's somebody working there to give you your your snacks. So I'm like every the people are working commerce is still happening. It's okay. If if you're if if you take appropriate precautions do what you do it you have to do. I can tell you one thing you can't do tomorrow or aluminum not as pizza. They're shutting all of their locations in Chicago are okay, now, wait a minute that changes everything doesn't it? Because that was my backup. Like, oh my God. This is the this is the end of civilization. Lou malnati's is not only not delivering their not cooking. They're not they're not they're shutting at nine pm tonight. So you can place your order by eight PM and still get your pizza tonight. And then warming up in your home tomorrow. Okay. Now that is frightening to me. Now. That's terrifying. Now that is a sign of the end times. That's amazing. Like, my husband literally said earlier today. Oh, we'll just walk down the street and get loose pizza and bring it home and eat it and know that can do that tomorrow this because really talk about leaving money on the table. How many people would be ordering out? Big thought steamy hut pizzas right now. It's too cold to cook them. I mean who knows maybe also order it before I go to bed. Kim wanted to say what you're on WGN. Hi, Tim, you're on the air guys. I bought Rockford. It's windy. It's cold blowing. You know, you're talking about taking a day off. I own a couple of homes out here. And we can't take a day off, you know, people still pass away. And and it last night. In fact, one of my staff numbers had to go out at two thirty to someone's home. And it's blowing it's cold at you just gotta keep going keep moving. Oh, I see. I I'm so sympathetic to that. And I completely agree with that. I mean, that's one job you don't think about, but we we're twenty four seven even if it's forty below. We still have to go out Mary Vanderbilt was doing traffic this morning talking about how bad the conditions are how did Mary get to work. Well, she got on the highway and drove to work, right? And like you talk about the Indians out in a hundred years ago. This is what they don't listen if I was superintendent of school, of course, schools canceled. I mean, we don't have to go to school is like Jon said, if if you can work from a cubicle at home, or if it's not so imperative Euboea work that don't be a work if your funeral guy, you got you can't wait you got to go right now. You gotta go right now. Interesting. Thanks for the call. I appreciate you. Joining us to have a good day. Have a good day. So the craziest scenario I was in your maybe doing this. Maybe you've been living through this lately. But the heart the most it was weird. In retrospect, I will say most frightening scenario is in an a car when the weather was unfortunate. Wasn't so scary to me at the time. But when I was maybe in seventh or eighth grade. We would go up to Arlington heights, Illinois once in a while to see my cousins NAT knuckle, and there was one year, and they don't remember what the holiday was was it around Christmas time or New Year's or something. But it was the wintertime, and we had gone up to Arlington heights. And now we were coming back. So it was at night. And my dad was driving on one of those cloverleaf ramps, and maybe it was just that. But this one seemed to be a little more involved like something in the Jane burn interchange. Although we would not have been there. But we were in some sort of, you know, ramp and visibility was bad and the roads were ice and snow and the ramp, you know, is kind of at an angle, you know, how they are. Sometimes not perfectly flat. Kind of have an angle on him says you go round. And it was just enough ice. And just enough angle that as we were going forward. We started to slide sideways. Down the edge of the lane onto the shoulder. And and beyond that was a drop-off. This is my recollection of it. The absolute truth may be somewhat different than this. But it was going to be perilous. If we kept that slide and now the tires are spinning. And my dad has a decision to make gun at two I break. How do I stop this? You know, that feeling that slide that you can't stop your your powerless? And when we got onto the shoulder, the tires caught something, and we stopped our sideways slide. And nobody said anything dad's driving mom's driving for kids in the car. Some of them may be wearing seat belts. And we all knew this was really bad is happening. And when it stopped happening. Nobody said anything, and we got home, and we never spoke about that. But I think that could have been catastrophic..

And we should all try and keep that in mind. Hit pause before you hit send on almost any format about changing the name of the Dan Ryan to the Barack Obama. Hey, John who the heck is Edens? I don't know who the heck Edens is so we look that up too. Because you know, so we do William g Edens expressway opened in nineteen fifty one the Edens. Which is of course, what's at route ninety north of the city heading up north. Ninety ninety four and that, you know, it splits, and then it's ninety when it splits right about that. Yeah. Opened in nineteen fifty one was named after William g Edens banker known as a pioneer of paved roads in Illinois. He was part of the good roads movement, and Illinois imagine that we were the pioneers of the good roads movement. When did we get off that road, which culminated in the state's first highway bond issue in nineteen eighteen how about them apples? The Kennedy was opened in nineteen sixty as the northwest expressway. But was renamed three years later for the thirty fifth president shortly after he was assassinated, you've got the Ike after white Eisenhower in one thousand nine hundred fifty five Dan Ryan opened in one thousand nine hundred sixty one and was named after Dan Bryan junior. Who is the president of the Cook County board of commissioners? He died in office that year and his wife, ruby served out his term, and she was on the board that was among the commissioners who voted to approve the name change. I sense a conflict of interest half. Thank you for your service. So sorry you died. I'm not sure your wife should decide if we named a road after you, the Kingery expressway opened in one thousand nine hundred fifty is the tri-state highway was named in one thousand nine hundred eighty three for Robert Kingery, the former director of the state's department of public works and the general manager of the Chicago regional planning association. You've got the Jane Addams, the Nobel prize winner, founder of whole house at les. Stevenson, we need Adly badly the Bishop Louis Henry Ford freeway opened in one thousand nine hundred fifty was the Colleen expressway, it was renamed in one thousand nine hundred eighty six for the Chicago religious activists Bishop Ford, the founder and pastor of Saint Paul church of God in Christ in Chicago is the only Chicago area expressway whose name includes a person's title, the Bishop Ford. Mary Mitchell wrote about that in the Tribune the other day and noted that that was politically advantageous for mayor Daley to oversee that when he was running for reelection. There's the Jane burn interchange. Poor Jane Byrne, she deserves better than that. Frank borman. Ronald Reagan among the names of the roads that we honor people within Chicago, should we do Brock Obama the same favor. I don't hope you ever honor me that way. But should we do Brock Obama that? That's the news click it WGN radio dot com. Vote with your mouse, tell us yes. Or no to that. Let's see here. John who the heck is he didn't think we answer that? I was. Going to talk a little bit about with you the Louis CK controversy today paying attention to that. So Louis C K a couple of weeks ago did a show about an hour long. Stand up. Where's Louis CK, Ben really kind of been in hiding? But now he's back. So there's a forty eight minute audio recording of CK that surfaced Sunday on YouTube. It was described as a set delivered. December sixteenth at governors comedy club in levittown. CK starts the set by noting that he's had a rough time in the last fourteen months since multiple women came forward accusing him of sexual harassment and misconduct. CK acknowledged the truth of the claims made in a New York Times expose November of twenty seventeen. And then he goes onto so so his attitude, in fact, he pretty much says what are you gonna do take away? My birthday my life is over. I don't give a bleep. So now he's back up on stage. And if ever you worried that you'd say something politically incorrect, and it would damage your career that ship has sailed on Louis CK. He said that in a day. He lost thirty five million dollars. Exactly what that means. But he lost a lot of money as a result of his losing contracts and endorsements and shows and so forth. So he's he's out. So now, he doesn't care. I mean, if you thought he was vain or or profane before now, it's Louis CK unleashed. It's a whole new Louis C K, or it's it's it's Louis your let's put it that way. And so, you know, he talks about the sort of things that he might have in the past. I guess the LGBT community the Florida high school shooting and the students who found celebrity status sense gays, his doctor who's gay every ethnic brand there is at cetera et cetera..

"Anything. I forget what skilling said, Mary, you probably know north facing or whatever they're all our street signs are covered. There were so many traffic signals out yesterday. I could not name them all. To try speaking. This all worse, we have these LED lights, and so they don't get warm. So there's nothing. Yeah. That must be what it is. Because I noticed this as well to snow covering some some stop lights on Wacker and areas that I have gone in my commute for years that that have never had this problem that now they're covered. You don't know if it's red or if it's not out whatever it might be so interesting about the LED lights will continue to monitor that next. Trump says he's he's among those who have very high levels of intelligence, but are not believers in climate change. So the president the United States is essentially coming out and saying that he does not believe in climate change. And that's something that as we see the assessment the climate change assessment that came from his office that was. I can't believe in this day and age we let this happen because the climate change change assessment, which showed some drastic and dire consequences to human made climate change was released on black Friday. And if you are like me, you're not paying attention to the news on black Friday. Right. You're out shopping. You might be watching sports. You are. Right. I'm just surprised that that we allow that to happen. And I know that there's that's that's the manipulation of the news. And what the White House likes the door any any news organization or any agency likes to do to the news. They don't want it. But this is something so important to human beings, not just Americans, but the, but we live on this planet and to bury it on a on a day that they know no one to look at it because politically it's inconvenient. Well in believing believing in it or not believing is not a sign of intelligence or lack of intelligence. It's just not they're not related, really. I have an idea to for the all those people who don't believe that this is happening. They should be at the back of the line. We're all getting on the arc. There you go. Republicans in the Senate re really increase their majority. Senators Cindy, Hyde Smith Mississippi. Apologized for making the reference to public hanging. She want her special runoff election yesterday, she defeated democrat candidate, Mike Espy who hope to become the state's first black Senator since reconstruction. This gives Republicans fifty three seats in the Senate a net increase of two Democrats have four forty seven the president in his. A number of rallies in Mississippi to support the Senator Cindy, Hyde Smith said at one point two to the crowd, Mike Espy he doesn't fit in Mississippi. He doesn't fit in. And and that's the question. I know that people really come on. Everything about race. But being an African-American is running the Mississippi and having a presidency he doesn't fit in with Mississippi seems to be a a strange thing here in two thousand eighteen cities had a transportation. Rebecca's Sheinfeld has promised the part of the long way to navy pier. Flyover will be finished an open for bikes and pedestrians before Christmas. You know when a pedestrian wants to take a stroll. Zero degree weather at navy pier. This is the flyover that has been over right by navy Pearson's. I mean, they've been on this construction for over a year. I'd Stephen, and this is something that maybe two years at this point. I drive by this every day. And it looks like it's done. It looked like it was done several months ago. I'm not sure why they waited so long to have the grand opening. I don't know. But the mayor's in this article the mayor he said they were he was to his frustration. He's really frustrated. And then she said, it's not just getting done thing. It also was a financial thing. So I don't know how they started. It not knowing how it's going to be funded altogether. But I don't know the it's very. Yeah. If anyone's not familiar with the city, the bike path kind of breaks up right around navy pier. And there have been a lot of issues with pedestrians and bikes sharing space, and there's a lot of it got dangerous activity. There's a lot of trouble with accidents things like that. So they created a fly over to go across navy pier. That kind of for the bikes essentially to to fly past that not have to stop and go straight. I don't I don't understand what's going on with construction that's down period because I've never seen it this late. I've never seen it this extensive the numbers a complete mess. So everything else is a complete mess. So let's go to Maryanne is Mary explain all of it in thirty seconds. Well, I don't I don't know. I mean, I I saw the overnight roadwork on on congress as well. I think that they have to work year round because there's so much. It's never been this late. It's never been this later this extensive this close to the city. I think that's what I'm talking like November December. I mean, there's limited work that can be done obviously between November and March. Anyway, a lot of stuff overhead and I think that's what they're doing on the Jane burn interchange. Stuff all the poaching. The Jane Burnham, the Kennedy right before it turns into the Ryan you've got that new were preparing to put a road in thing configuration goes across. Well, it looks like it looks like a new road in a new bridge over the Kennedy at that spot. So what is that? Yeah. It's it's a little odd. I mean, it's going to still be like a circular type of thing. But it's just going to be more extensive into the city from different areas that an dot project is that a state the the only issue I have and I'd let next on the mayor comes in and ask him about this. When you drive the Kennedy, right when you're just right? Downtown the construction is so massive and all the bridges are out. And there's construction rubble everywhere and the taggers have gotten to it. So there's tag graffiti everywhere. You gotta work. It looks like a zombie apocalypse when you come into the city from that angle. It looks like oh my God. But they say about Chicago is true. Look, I'll run down. It is. Eyesore from Ohio. Yeah. Kennedy at the Ohio exit on the Kennedy to the Jane burn interchange. Look to the Ike out looks like a third world country. The whole thing's surprised because this is such a major thoroughfare for the entire country that that the mayor of the city Chicago would let that happen to be the face of what you see if you're driving from. To to New York you'd like uh, Chicago. It's not pretty no, no. Is a very I think it's a very interesting anyway. All right. All right, go cats coach Fitz big ten coach of the year. How about you? Dave will pick that up in sports and finally. Thank you. And finally. Thoughtful lettuce was better, but McDonald's still isn't serving salads. What's happening? I don't know how many of us are going to go to McDonald's for a salad to begin with. But I thought Steve disappointed that he can't get a salad now at McDonald's when he goes and gets his bench fries. I actually top sixty six. Sponsored by American weather makers, heating and cooling, sixty minutes. Coming up at six thirty developing tragedy in Indiana this morning, six people including four children have been killed in a house. Fire in Logan's port, Indiana. That's about one hundred miles southeast of Chicago. We'll have an update on the story coming up at six thirty from the WGN newsroom, and we still have reports of some fallen power cables in the long grove area half day road.

"To make your transit better so you know more bus lanes on the street run more frequent bus service really in your transit networks so. That people see it, as a attractive alternatives and you know they they want to take the transit, service, because it's so big and shallow says, that's that's, the way forward as opposed to you know specifically talking down on your brand left very careful to, say that, you have a little transportation, system you know like pack used before them but we, re- we, really need to be mindful about you know. Providing good transit service that, people, wanna take, are there other. Things too besides you know improving public transportation? Are we talking about perhaps doing congestion pricing is there some, restrictions on perhaps allowing some of these cars Uber, and lift cars? Into the congested downtown areas certain city center Areas what are? The other solutions Yeah congestion. Pricing makes a lot of sense I said he likes for city like New York where these cars really, tend to accumulate and the downtown and it's really it's more of a downtown problem than. A problem throughout the city There's a mismatch because where you can really do, the most good is in the farther out neighborhoods where. Transit is sparser and these services can, be helpful supplements to the transit system but, where people were the lift drivers ended up circulating in cruising prepares is in the crowded downtown? And, that's where you really don't want more. Car topic so if you tell us congestion pricing just sort of saying out gothic in general and and, especially Iran lift and sort of push them out to the areas where the most That, would be ideal yeah and it's not just the you know the city center areas that seeing Part. Of this report is that you know I smaller cities Uber and lift might be a good thing the problem we're talking about. Here is focused on the nine bound nine major metropolitan. Areas? Where most of these. Rides. Are happening so this is, a big, city problem with these companies right Yeah exactly in in smaller cities Uber and let, are basically fulfilling, this need for a supplement to the transit. System but really you know most of the usage of our in the United city seventy percent of all trips are in those. Big cities like New York Chicago LA Jili what has Uber What have they said about this study if, anything have they. Responded at all They can test some of sellers findings. I think they're what they really want to avoid some sort of cap on you know. How big they can get and you know that that's the point of. Contention and then people who recognize that you recognize Uber Kavak is a problem they don't necessarily agree whether. There should be this commanding control responsive? Capping or, whether you should do everything With with. Price and just make it more expensive for them to cruise on the most congested streets in the city But I think some Uber's perspective they recent. New York has been pretty amenable to congestion fee as long as it affects all traffic and not. Just Uber traffic and what they have wanted to avoid is is a limit on how many drivers they can have I guess it's smart to be part of the conversation now as opposed to reacting to some harsher of reaction from these cities later on Yeah I mean I think, there is a lot of common ground between Uber and the transit at advocates and analysts who do walking gas from, pricing and? That could be a coalition that, that works together and tries to make this pretty politically difficult policy solutions happen in big American cities in a way that it. Has not happened yet so if I'm an Uber or lift customer and I'm getting into that car. This morning and I am concerned about the climate climate change that I have to take another second look at what I'm doing. Don't I I would definitely yeah it's your concern about the climate you know the process and the train is still the way. To go If you can do that, and you know failing, that the share trip is always better than a solo trips and yeah I would say don't forget transit don't sleep on transit pay attention. And. Advocate for better transit because that's gonna get the cities that we want and the climate that we want in the future yeah and that was gonna be my next question is you? Know what else, can. We do as as customers as. Commuters to have our voices heard and perhaps be part of this conversation Yeah I mean Uber and lifts boasts they've kind, of been weaponising their apps there at least in New York where. There is, some momentum to limit their services, they've been giving customers, these alerts via the apps to kind of contact their council members and our deserts people to be informed and don't necessarily take the company's. Word. For what the debate is in really you know about the study up on the year before advocating against the policy that really is intended to make the whole city transportation system better Been we appreciate you being with us this morning great report, at against streets blog dot org we're going to leak out to this, it's.
