So we got home tonight at 10:45 and we have no air conditioning. Our neighbor Lisa (who fed our cats while we were gone) told us that a tree trimmer did something to a line a few houses down and electricity went out again and several things were "burned" out in our neighbor's house. Our air conditioning, main computer, the main bathroom, the living room fan are all non-functioning now. And all except the air were off at the time.
Oh, we'll be getting to the bottom of this!
In the meantime, it's too late to find/post pictures so I'm going to do it tomorrow in the light of day and after a full night's sleep in my own bed, albeit a hot night. What I would'nt give for that loud air conditioner in that first hotel, huh?
