We spent the morning with Deborah, grabbed lunch at Portillo's, including a couple of combo sandwiches for souvenirs for the people at home, and then took her to the airport. Her next visit has to have warmer weather so we can actually see the city of Chicago. I think the warmest it got here was 23 degrees, but that's before accounting for the humidity and endless wind.
Our dryer hasn't always been working lately. It will start if it's cold, but not if it's been running. Google leads me to believe this means the motor is dying, but we wanted to eliminate other causes before we spent $135 on the new motor. Nick took the dryer apart, cleaned it out, checked everything he could, and we still believe it's the motor. He's using his very favorite tool (outside of a scalpel, I guess) the Hitachi 90-degree impact driver. He really, really likes it. Since he got it, he other cordless drill has essentially just gathered dust.
