A/C Maint

I disassembled my A/C for my bedroom, and found that the slot that is suposed to allow the water that develops on the inside coils to drain to the outside was clogged with mud.  There was also a lot of mud in the pan in the back of the unit.  Note to self, clean the unit a little more frequently. This would explain why the water was suddenly draining to the inside of the house instead of the outside.   I cleaned out the mud as best as I could and made a tiny modification to the 1/16″ slot for water to drain, that is I made the slot larger.  I’m hoping this will better allow dirt etc to work its way outside where it shouldn’t clog up the drain as easily.   I think after the heat wave is over I will remove the unit for a longer period of time and see if I can use the air compressor to better clean some areas that I couldn’t reach.

Dave Day

Happy Dave day to one and all.

It may seem a little strange to some to celebrate Dave day still, w/o Dave but I think for all of us who did it is extreemly important.  I’m quite certain Dave approves of it as well.  ?He pretty much told us so today.

We had just been discussing some of the odd events that people had experienced after Dave passed when out of nowhere, the sky clouded over and the temp dropped about 15 degrees.  Then we were hit with a nice cool rain for a few minutes.   When the rain passed we happend to look up in the sky to the east of the house.   There, a little faint, but still as plain as day was the longest full rainbow I have ever seen in my life.

This was the 1st rainbow his parents have seen since his passing. A number of the rest of his friends, myself included,  have seen them at times when they were really missing Dave.
I think today was quite the appropriate time for it as they finally managed to sell his car today as well.  To me it seemed very much like a “thank you”, and “I love you”.
