    Just a little bit on what happened here in NE NC. http://www.dailyadvance.com/News/2019/06/20/Emergency-officials-Storm-spurs-widespread-outages-no-tornado-confirmed.html

    We had heavy rain and cloud to ground lightning last night. Picked up .75” when it was all said and done. We’ve gotten about 2” over the last five days.

    The problem there is that the long term trade off for buying four AC window units for hot weather and four space heaters for cold weather is highly increased electrical bills. Get the new HVAC unit that is “green” cuts down on electrical costs both short and long term. In the long run it just makes better fiscal sense to buy a whole new upstairs HVAC unit. The new unit is set to be installed on May 7th. Yay!! About time. It will have been almost six weeks from the initial service call when they finally get it put in.

    Sounds like a good plan. Problem is that it’s the upstairs unit. We have a separate unit for downstairs which is the main area of the house. The only thing upstairs are four bedrooms (including the master) two bathrooms, and my wife’s office/craft room. The downstairs unit works fine, but I’m worried that it might go soon as well. They’re both 13 years old and were cheap contractor grade made by Weather King. It’s inevitable that the downstairs unit will fail at some point. Can’t justify spending money on four window units. I’m kinda at the mercy of the HVAC company.

    HVAC Unit has been broken (needs replacement) since March 23. Unit has been on order according to my HVAC guy. Been a month now with no work and 80’s just around the corner. Now he won’t return my phone calls. Starting to get pissed.

    Now they’re here. Just watched a heavy metal chair get blown across my deck and into the yard.

    Looking at radar and the squall line is over the Chowan River and headed towards me in Pasquotank County. It’s about 2015 hours and I should see the storms by 2100. The wind has picked up appreciably in the last hour or so. It’s also cooled off quite a bit since sundown. I can see lightning to the west and hear the thunder as well. Gonna suck having to put the windows down with the HVAC out, but I have a nice big Wind Machine floor fan. Hopefully I can sleep without sweating my b**ls off.

    Sitting at 84 here in Elizabeth City. Quite muggy as well. HVAC crapped out last week and I’m waiting for the new unit and air handler to come in.

    It knows that there is zero chance of snow for us so it decides to go negative. By the time November rolls around it will either be positive or trending that way. It will then tease us by fooling the models to think that it will go negative during the winter of 2019/2020, but it will remain steadfastly positive through the entire winter only to negative once again in April 2020.

    This isn’t grasping at straws, this is grasping at vapor and hoping to grab ahold of something substantial. Stick a fork in in until December. Only 10 months to go!! 2019/2020 is gonna be epic!!
