I was worried, in this excessive heat wave we’re experiencing, about a power outage. And I was worried that if there was one, our generator might not kick-in to keep our air conditioning and refrigerator/freezer going.
What I didn’t expect was for the compressor on our central air conditioning unit to shit the bed last night. When I woke up at 7:00 this morning, the thermostat showed that it was already 80° in our living room area. And, today, of all days, the high is supposed to reach 112°. It’s 108 as I am writing this and it’s only noon!
I have a friend who claims to be “knowledgeable” about electronics (whatever that means) coming over in a few minutes, but if he can’t get the thing going, it’s gonna be a long, hot day and night before a genuine HVAC repairman can come over for an “emergency” service call tomorrow afternoon.
But the good news is that it’s only going to be 104° tomorrow.
