Chicago in 24 hrs

I had the pleasure of seeing my parents for a quick visit in the Western suburbs of Chicago before heading back to Europe, and not only did they make me the most delicious dinner of corned beef and cabbage (an all-time personal favorite), but I also got a private flight demonstration of my Dad’s new remote-controlled helicopter.  The garage turned out to a be a good setting for the show since massive 5 ft. piles of slushy snow still bordered the driveway.  In 2014, Chicago saw its fifth snowiest winter on record according to the “Chicago Tribune.”  I think everyone is looking forward to spring, helicopters included.
