    A man was shot and robbed of a snowblower in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side early this morning -- the first shooting since this week's blizzard hit on Tuesday, police said.This week's storm kept crime down so much that the shooting was one of the first serious crimes reported to police since the storm landed, Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis said... There had been no shootings in the city since around 3 p.m. Tuesday, when the snow first hit, according to preliminary data.

    The 47-year-old man was walking down the middle of the street near West 56th Street and South Shields Avenue at about 1:40 a.m. with the snowblower when a white four-door sedan pulled up, police said......
    One of four people inside the car asked, "How much you want for the snowblower?...."The man told them it was not for sale, according to police and the victim's mother, who said her son was headed to his home in East Chatham.Two men got out and took the snowblower and $27 from the man's pockets, police and his mother said. ....One of the men asked the man if he wanted to "get popped" just before the man heard a gunshot and was wounded in the thigh, police said. The two robbers, who appeared to be in their 20s, got back in the car and sped off north.

    I've used them at 11pm, but I can't vouch for 1:40 A.M.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Did she tell you?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    It just seems weird to me but where I live, you would have no useful light to operate by after dark.

    A serious snow blower has lights. And in Chicago, it's very like there are plenty of street lights. And doing it at 1:40 in the morning would mean less traffic to worry about and stuffs.
