RE: Sizzling Afternoon!


We were fortunate that it didn't quite reach 90 yesterday!  We were
completely without power for 6 hours while they replaced that faulty breaker
box.  Two of the breakers had begun to literally melt down and were causing
flickering lights by the time the electrician got her yesterday morning.
Everything seems rock solid with this new breaker box and the air is working
well thus far.  Of course at the prices electricians charge, it ought to
work!!!

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

With the 90 plus weather of late- I think you should find the time to
uncover the A/C....
