Cooking for a crew: Making meals at the firehouse comes with challenges

Metra is canceling service on the Electric Line, which serves Homewood and Flossmoor commuters, on Friday, Feb. 1, due to damage to the line’s overhead power system caused by a freight train derailment and cold weather.Friday will be the third consecutive day without service. Trains did not operate Wednesday or Thursday because extreme cold temperatures caused numerous line problems. Some riders may be able to use the Rock Island Line as an alternate on Friday. To help riders affected by the service disruption, Metra has arranged with PACE to provide limited shuttle bus service during the morning . . .
