[A/C has been turned on!!!]
With great fanfare, the new chiller was loaded onto the roof last Monday (10 days ago) with a giant crane. Relief was in sight! The days ticked by last week and not a whiff of cool air to be had. Friday was the promised day of turning on the chiller. I thought a ribbon cutting ceremony was in order after all that we’ve been through!
The A/C is still not turned on. Granted, the workmen have been parading past my doorway with all manners of pipes, hoses, and boxes of parts the last three days. So, we wait, and swelter in our sweat lodges.
We have been wondering if there was a purposeful collusion of the powers-that-be to wait on the A/C hook-up until the cooler autumn temperatures arrive. (There are two cold fronts promised this week and next to bring the temps down to the low 90’s and upper 80’s.) It saves energy, after all.
