Futile attempt to combat the elements

The last round of storms that hit our part was really brutal; Rain fell at a rate of two inches per hour and the winds gusted to seventy five miles per hour, and when day broke the mess that this left behind was pretty intense.

When I headed outside to try and pick up some of my yard all I heard was the sound of chainsaws and leaf blowers.

I knew that I had to at least scrub up the downed branches and attempt to rake up some of the leaves. When I rounded the corner to the back of the house I was saddened to see that a substantial branch had fallen across my exterior Heating and Air Conditioning unit. The air handler had a giant dent in the top and I wasn’t sure if it had disfigurementd any of the interior part of the unit. I sited a call to my Heating and Air Conditioning dealer and she recommended me not to try running the component until it was inspected out! She told me that they couldn’t be out until the next day so I simply put the branch aside and went back to trying to rake the yard. With the wind speeds still gusting to thirty this was a futile attempt at best. I decided to call it a day and wait until the weather completely calmed down before heading out to try again… At least I was able to pick up all the branches and remove the giant one the Heating and Air Conditioning unit. I hope the storms stay away until the serviceman arrives to make sure that my cooling system still works because boiling muggy air caused by heavy rains is no fun to deal with either.
