For the second time in a week, the entire west campus of UIC (Ashland to Damen) is without power, with the exception of the UIC Medical Center, which is running on a generator. The upside: studying for finals via candlelight is so romantic. UPDATE (10:45pm): electricity restored, but heat and hot water are not working.
