ArcGIS Errors 010429, 010029, and 010067 and IDW

Trying to run IDW tool on a point dataset and get:

ERROR 010429: Error in GRID IO: CellLyrChannelClose: Attempt to close invalid cell layer channel.

ERROR 010029: Unable to create the raster [some_path/some_file]

ERROR 010067: Error in executing grid expression. Failed to execute (IDW).

What I forgot to do was project my data from geographic coordinates to a projected coordinate system. I have forgotten this and have seen this error suite numerous times over the years.

It seems like a useful error message that even hints at such a thing would help the user waste less time, but what do I know. So I am putting it here for future me when I google this same problem a year or so from now.
