I am sorry - I missed out yesterday - somehow too busy with a multitude of things and by the end of the day I was whacked out. So a day off the blog in these dozy end of June days in Chicago is no bad thing.
I am rarely here for the Fourth of July weekend, indeed this may very well be the first ever. The city now seems, this Thursday before the long weekend to already been evacuated. There are tourists to be sure (many of them above on the river at 2 pm this afternoon) but native Chicagoans are few and far between, and the COT office is now down to just the three of us!
I will have some other interesting news overnight, so check in here at 9 am London time tomorrow, that is 3 am Chicago time, for a welcome announcement.
