We did get stuck in Chicago because of all the flooding - part of the I-80 was closed. We had no idea about all the flooding until we finally got off the highway after an hour, and maybe going 1 km, when we asked at a hotel what the problem was. We stayed there that night and then in the morning it still took an hour to get out of that area.
When Conrad makes another album of our trip home we'll send a link out. If anyone's reading this who didn't get the links for the other pictures and would like to see them let me know.
I'll make another entry about all the fabric I got :)
