It’s Always Something

As Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say, “It’s always something.”

Today, the “something” was news from an HVAC technician that our heat pump is officially dead beyond any reasonable hope of repair, having exceeded its life expectancy by over a decade.  The bottom line is that we need to replace our entire system.  We’ve known this day was coming, but the timing is less than ideal, considering tomorrow’s forecasted high temp of 99 degrees.

Ugh.

So, after spending too much time on the phone lining up appointments for estimates, it was off to KMart to buy fans to see us through until we can get the A/C back online.  I was a bit worried that fans might be hard to come by since we’re on the eve of the annual UVa student influx, but I found an ample supply and hope that we’ll now be able to keep our ambient temperature down in the low ’80’s.

If you see anyone in our family over the next several days and we seem a bit, um, cranky … well, you know why.
