This morning I woke up before my alarm went off and was immediately aware that my air conditioner had stopped. I thought we had had another power failure; we've had several short power outages the last few days. Then I noticed that my microwave oven timer was still on, a sure sign that I have power. I discovered that the air conditioner had tripped its circuit. I hope that isn't a bad sign of something worse to come! It has been working all day, though. I certainly hope it will continue to operate well. I really don't need any more major expenses right now!
