Cooling off and closed in

August 16, 2007

Nature abhors a vacuum. We got the AC repaired (a minor part replacement, thank goodness). Then the garage door broke. The gigantic spring that makes it (relatively) easy to raise and lower the door broke. With a great big noise. Luckily, we park our vehicles outside because they’d otherwise be stuck in the garage. Not so luckily, this is apparently not a DIY sort of repair. Specialized tools, parts, near-lethal amounts of spring tension, etc.

The Overhead Door Guy is coming by this afternoon.

And now a communiqué to the rest of the house: I am declaring an embargo on failures. All of you are expected to do your duty until commanded otherwise. I’m looking at you, water heater.
