This weather recently has left myself and others in a tailspin. First, what happened was every one of us had a cold snap a few weeks ago, followed immediately by an deranged heatwave – all within more than one weeks. As a result, the many hoses connecting our radiator coils to the a/c over-stretched plus tore right apart, leaving myself and others with no cool air in our car. Then, later on, this past week, every one of us had a massive hailstorm for the first time in years. This wasn’t just a few moments of gumball-sized hail or anything wimpy like that. This was heavy hail, coming down in sizes larger than hockey balls! I’d actually regularly heard that hail can come down with enough force to make enormous dents in cars, but this hail came down with a passion. I was sitting in our apartment, watching from our window as the balls of ice harshly struck the ground enjoy frozen eggs. That’s when I heard a loud crash just a few feet away from me. Startled, I turned just in time to see our entire window unit fall out of the window! I screamed out of panic, and went running quickly to try plus grab the unit by its faceplate. Sadly, I was far too slow, plus all I could do was watch the unit fall straight down, more than one stories down plus smash apart on the sidewalk below. Not only was I out an a/c, but there was no way I could even get myself to go outside to scrub up the mess plus try to salvage it. I kicked myself many times over plus over for neglecting to respectfully secure the unit in the window frame, as I’ve had numerous visitors to our arena tell myself and others how important it is to make sure the unit can’t budge. Needless to say, I was more than aggravated over the entire situation, plus it took another half hour until the huge hail stopped coming down. As I went outside to size up the pieces of our once-pristine a/c, all I could particularly guess about was having to buy another window unit. I was definitely going to make certainly certain it was installed respectfully this go ‘round!
