I'm still working on the trees every day, at least until it gets too hot. Though I cut the logs into smaller and smaller pieces, they are still so heavy and I have to make more cuts so the pieces are smaller. I put an ad in the paper for free firewood....cut into short sections need to be split. I got two replies and they both said they would be here the next day. No one has come, so I will just burn it all in the back yard.
Last week our main A/C unit failed. I did a quick check, but it was beyond my talents so a technician was called in. It was the low voltage transformer that powers the thermostat and the control circuits. It failed at night after it started to cool down, so it caused no discomfort. The bill was $204.00, but this is the first time we've had to have it repaired in 27 years.
A short while ago, at almost 11:00 PM, I decided to make myself a cup of decaf coffee. Surprise!!!! NO WATER!! My household A/C is water cooled, so no water=no A/C. I heated bottled water in the microwave to make my coffee. With the pool just outside one bathroom door, we have 30,000 flushes available. I've been down this road before and I have the tripod and tools to remove the well pump and install a new one. Lowe's is open at 7:00 AM and I bet I'll have water by 10:00 AM. I noticed that the pressure switch is looking pretty bad, so I'll replace that at the same time. I will take some pictures of my rig. Who knows, they might spur someone else into doing it themselves. I SHOULD have more to say tomorrow.
I will ensure that the breaker to the well is open so there will be no chance of getting hurt.
We were supposed to be in Nova Scotia now. It is fortunate that we were home for the first summer in many years. With a failure of the A/C or the well, it would mean that the house would be without A/C for the summer and we would get back in September to be greeted by a moldy house with mildew everywhere. How lucky can you get?
