Trying Not to Complain

Yesterday while driving through Oregon, the fan on the air conditioning in my van stopped working. Or rather, it worked intermittently. Sometimes it would work; sometimes it didn't. The AC compressor works fine — I can feel cool air, and the rear AC fan works. So now I'll need to take the van to the dealership for two unrelated problems: the AC fan (it may be the switch or relay) and whatever is causing the service-engine light to come on. As it happens, I didn't get that light again yesterday.

I needed the AC because it's quite warm here in Oregon. Not as hot as Redding, thank goodness, but still a hot summer day. This is good because we need the roof dried out, but it's still hard to work for long in the sun. We work for a while, then take a break, then work some more. Today's task: get the ropes, ladders, and other equipment in place for accessing the roof.
