The A/C guys are here.

Update later.

UPDATE: It sounded dangerously like they needed to replace the "flux capacitor." But it could be me being delirious after a three hour unfiltered blogging jag. Tarnation, it's been awhile. Fortunately, though, it sounds like a lot less than replacing the entire heat pump, which I sullenly factored into the family macro budget last night.

UPDATE DEUX: Ahh, it was just the "capacitor," no flux. Total bill (including labor) much less than I was willing to shell out around 5 pm tonight for a window-mounted unit for the master bedroom (the kids had the whole campout already planned).

I'm such a wuss, but you knew that already.

"flux capacitor" made me burst out with involuntary laughter. I'm sure my office mates think I'm nutso.

Ah, the flux capacitor--not only will it restore stately LLama Butcher Manor to air conditioned comfort, but it makes time travel possible as well--that project on the Barbary pirates should be a snap.

A time travelling heat pump? Awesome!

"The Flux Capacitor" series of time traveling adventure novels, in which our Llama heroes bring air conditioning to distant places and times. Featuring cameos by LMC, INDC Bill (as the evil Heatmiser), Kathy the Cake Eater, Sheila O'Malley (as a mistress to Lord Nelson, no less!), everyone's favorite goldfish Phin, and, of course, Dr. Rusty Shackleford as the Sultan.
