June 13th

It's been really hot out, but the air conditioner didn't kick in.  We've signed up for this thing where Roseville can turn off the condensor if there's too much power being used (to hopefully prevent brown outs), so I assumed it was that.

In the evening, we watched "Ghost Rider II", which was pretty meh.  Vic enjoyed it, but there were a lot of things that annoyed me.  Still no A/C.

I went out to take a look at the condenser, and it didn't seem to be getting power.  I took the cover off and found one of the capacitors was all kinds of burnt up, with 2 of the wires burnt, one completely off, and another burnt through the insulation.  I unplugged everything and tidied up the mess.  Vic helped me crimp on new connectors, and now I just need to replace the capacitor and hopefully everything will be right with the world.
