Perfect. The condenser coils are "iced" up because some numb nuts forgot to change the furnace filter.

Your right, I battle this from time to time and it sucks. We have been tagged with reputations and they don't even know us.

Plumbers really get a bad rap. When a total stranger calls they are on edge about plumbing right over the phone. I hate that.

Jimmy Buffett is can follow Floyd and not be ruined. Went and saw him several years ago. The Doobie Bro's opened for him. Interesting smell in the place during most of the concert.

Plumbing is just a crappy job that can really stink at times. But you know what they say...don't trust a plumber who bites his nails.
