The NATO conference is still coming to Chicago, and the Milwaukee Red Cross is prepared:
CBS 2 News has obtained a copy of a Red Cross e-mail sent to volunteers in the Milwaukee area.

It said the NATO summit “may create unrest or another national security incident. The American Red Cross in southeastern Wisconsin has been asked to place a number of shelters on standby in the event of evacuation of Chicago.”
An evacuation of Chicago? I don't think that's happened since the Fire.

On the bright side, Milwaukee has a nice domed stadium where the Brewers play. Maybe they can put us up in there. I assume there will be plenty of beer and brats to go around.

But, within the city limits, we have 2.8 million people. It will take a while to move us all.

I'm worried the roads will start clogging,
so I plan to escape by jogging.
