How best to use my time

As I sit looking out the window at a blocked-off street, I'm listening to emergency dispatch. I'm told our home doesn't face the home where the murder suspect is hiding, so I may very well see nothing except empty street, even if something happens. The sun will set soon.

I'm curious, of course, and I'd like a few extra seconds heads-up if something starts to go south (literally in my case). But I've got huge blind spots out there--the neighborhood wasn't designed for defense.

Maybe doing the dishes is a better plan.

UPDATE: The dishes got done, and they arrested the guy without incident.
