How Dry I Am (Not)

The clothes dryer in my apartment started making unhappy rattling noises while I was drying the last load of my laundry a few days ago. I thought it might be some sort of load imbalance, but even running empty it still rattles once it warms up. I reported it to the property manager and yesterday got a call from the appliance repairman. Unfortunately, the earliest he can be here is Friday morning, and by Noon Friday I hoped to be on the road for Oregon. That means I won't be able to dry the laundry I need to do by Thursday to pack for the trip. It's a minor annoyance — there's a laundromat only a short distance from here — but an annoyance nonetheless.
