The wind is ripping and roaring outside and I am starting to worry about my air conditioner. I have a window air conditioner on the west side of the house. There’s a large tree right next to the house and has a lot of old branches. A couple of years ago, a branch from the tree crashed down on the side of the house and took out the air conditioner and the window. I had to spend about $700 to replace the air conditioner and repair the window. There was a storm much like this one outside, when that accident occurred. The winds were strong and it was raining heavily. I think that’s why I am feeling so anxious, worried, and concerned. I just installed the air conditioner a couple of weeks ago because we have had a lot of humidity and heat. Now I wish I would have waited another month. The weather from this storm is coming from the gulf area where the temperatures are much warmer. We weren’t expecting so much rain and wind, but the storm shifted yesterday and that changed our entire forecast. Now I’m really worried that another branch will take out the machine. I could move the window air conditioner to a safer place, but it’s extremely heavy and bulky. My son put it in the window and helped me with the installation. I would need to do it all by myself and I’m not sure that I have the strength. If the wind wasn’t howling and moving so fast, I wouldn’t even worry about the heavy rain.
