Here we go again....I hope not!

Well, you won't believe it, but I'll tell you anyway....the a/c started acting up last night.

Yes, you heard me right. Hmm....seems it stopped working the end of October last year....and it's August....ugh....I hope that doesn't mean we're in for another a/c ordeal.

We noticed the house just wasn't feeling very cool and checked and there was a nice big blob of ice forming around one of the little pipes off of the indoor a/c unit. Ack. We shut down the a/c overnight....not something you want to have to do in TX in August, but the Lord had mercy on us and sent a nice big thunderstorm last night to cool things down some. Also, thankfully each bedroom has a ceiling fan or another type of fan and that helped. This morning CKB turned the a/c back on and by the time I got up and going for the day the ice was starting to form again. NOOOOO!

I shut the a/c back off and we're a tad on the warm side right now waiting long enough to make sure it's completely thawed out before we start trying to slowly cool the house down - we probably will wait 'til evening to start when the heat of the day is over. It's a balmy 88 degrees outside today....let's see what the ol' thermostat says right now.....hmm, 83, at least it's a little cooler still in the house somehow. Here's hoping the a/c unit just needs freon this time around!

Hopefully this is not the beginning of another a/c saga...but if it is, I'll let you know how it turns out this time...if I don't melt first!

Oh No. I really feel for you. It's no fun without AC. We've gotten so used to it. I'll send up a prayer that it starts acting like it should ToDay.

We experienced an A/C freeze one time when we were on vacation and had to move to another room. I hope that there will be a swift resolution to your A/C troubles this time. If things get to hot, come here where it is in the 60's today. Fall is in the air!

ugh! I am really sorry to hear this. You can come up here too -today's high is 80 and I don't know what it was this morning but it was nice and cool outside that's for sure! We aren't supposed to get higher than 85 this week! Come on!!
