You probably know by now that our appliances have names. Herbie's our a/c. I wrote about the typhoon last night and my worry that the strong gusts of wind would make him fall off the brackets. Luckily, the brackets stayed intact. Unfortunately, Herbie seems to be having some problems. I am not sure yet but the room does not seem to cool down as well as it used to. I tried it earlier and the a/c compressor didn't seem to be kicking in. Herbie's still new but is it time to have him checked out? I hope not.
