Yesterday, after a breif interruption by work, I went out for a ride. Despite it being about 1,000,000,000 degrees out (97) I went anyhow, but decided to keep it easy, so I went around the Inner Harbor, then out the Gwynns Falls Trail. On the trail part that runs through town I spotted this painting, I think I have shown it before, but I like it.
We opened all the windows and gutted it out (85 in the house all night), then this morning I went off to work. I called around and found a place in Rockville that sells parts for AC/heating to the public. I had bought stuff there for the old house years ago, unfortunately nobody in the B'more area does that. I scooted out of work early after doing some things and a little internet research, then came home and dismantled the AC compressor to find that the start/run capacitor (one of the 6 actual parts of it as I have learned) had blown up, so I took it out, ran down to Rockville, got a new one and went home to slap it in. Success! the AC works again.
I rewarded myself with another ride, it was only 90 degrees out today :) I went up to Lake Montebello, looking splendid in the Summer sun.
