As an added bonus, much of Evanston's lake front is
designated as a park.  Walking due east on Main will dump
you into one of them, and I think it is fairly short on
lights.  There are also parks at South Blvd (the S. Blvd L
stop), and up at Northwestern on the lakefill (Noyes stop).

The downside is there aren't any places to get provisions
near any of the places in Evanston.

The forcast is partly cloudy, and I expect that there is a
real chance of lake effect snow for Michigan.  Normally I
don't care, but it means there will be lots of junk in the
air to the east--which is where the shower will come from.

I'm not feeling so well either, so I probably will bow out
of whatever happens (and hope my apartment building isn't
hit by a meteor due to some spiteful god).
