I'm at my home studio in LVT today a block away. I went down to the helicopter landing area and I heard the injured officer was standing, and will be okay. So that's what matters. I, on the other hand, had to eat old chicken from the fridge for lunch because the neighborhood is on lockdown.

Glad you're okay over there, Bruce! About what time was the lockdown finished?

7pm or so. My son's nurse was off duty at 4pm but could not leave the neighborhood until 7pm. Never a dull moment.
