I blog about the speed at which my fingernails grow, but I neglected to update the status of our hot as Hades house. The a/c man thinks we got hit by lightning that fried our system. It is way too far gone to repair. We need a completely new system. Homeowners agreed to pay the cost above and beyond our absurdly large deductible, which brings the cost down to about a fourth of the replacement cost. So, now we have a request in to the repair dude for paperwork to give insurance that we will hand deliver and get an estimate on wait time for a check. After we get the check, we hand deliver it to repair dude who will then order the new system. Then, we wait for the system and wait to have it installed. We’re looking at a MINIMUM of a week until we have air again. I keep hearing “two weeks” ringing in my head. They’re going to replace the unit inside and outside of the house and that sounds a little ominous to me. Will they be punching holes in walls? Will we need to move into a hotel for several days? Will we have air for our anniversary so that we can hug each other without saying, “eww, you smell”? The most important question is, will we have air before we have a heat stroke?
