Made it to Mehama

I got to Mehama at 5 PM, only an hour later than originally planned, and a little the worse for wear for the roughly 290 miles from Yreka. Although the engine light didn't come back on, the noise from the engine got louder as the day went on. North of Eugene, the air conditioning quit completely, and it's a very hot weekend in the Willamette Valley. When I got to Mehama, and after recovering from the heat for a bit, Lisa came and looked, and immediately pointed at the air-conditioning compressor. She says she thinks the clutch on the pulley is broken, so it won't turn properly, and that's the source of all of the noise. We'll have to get it in for repairs on Monday, but at least there's no huge hurry -- they could hold on to it for three weeks if necessary.

I then went to her father's house and dealt with e-mails, mostly Worldcon-related, that had come in during the six hour drive from Yreka. I'm caught up for now, I think. I don't really want to have to think much more today. That 700 mile drive tires me out.
