I don’t know about you, but this weather has left me in a tailspin. First, all of us had a cold snap around here a few weeks ago, followed by an deranged heatwave – all within several days. As a result, the hoses connecting our radiator coils to the cooling system became over-stretched plus tore apart, leaving me with no cool air in our car. Then, this same week, all of us had a hailstorm for the first time in years. This wasn’t a small hail storm with just a few moments of gumball-sized hail. This was heavy hail I’m talking about, which was coming down in sizes larger than golf balls! I’d always heard that there’s a possibility hail can come down with enough force to make dents in cars, but this storm of hail came down with a passion. I was in our apartment, watching safely from our window as the balls of ice struck the ground appreciate frozen golf balls. That’s when I heard a loud crash just feet away from me. Startled, I jumped up and turned just in time to see our window equipment fall out of the window! I loudly screamed out of panic, running swiftly to try plus grasp the equipment by its faceplate. Sadly, I was too slow, plus all I even could do was watch the equipment fall several stories down plus fully smash apart on the sidewalk. Not only was I out a working window cooling system, but there was no way I could even go outside to clean up the mechanical mess plus try to salvage it. I kicked myself over plus over for neglecting to make sure I properly secured the equipment in the window frame, as I’ve had several visitors to our arena at that point to tell me how substantial it is to make sure the equipment can’t budge. Needless to say, you better believe I was more than aggravated over the entire situation, plus Id say it took another half hour until the hail stopped coming down. As I finally went outside to option up the pieces of our once-pristine cooling system, all I could even feel was anger about having to buy another window unit. I was going to make very certain this time it was installed properly!
