About heat...(when it's chilly)

Around 4:00 AM, I switched to the heat cycle on the now 'off' AC unit to take the chill out of the trailer... It's a reverse cycle unit... EW! What is that smell? Something is/was smoldering maybe burning, and then all of a sudden the smoke alarm went off. SHUT DOWN! Disabled the smoke alarm to silence that awful noise and looked at the clock.

Fortunately, there was no fire, and I didn't see any smoke ... but something definitely burned up inside the unit. Whatever was singed, fried, or burned smelled awful.

Couldn't call maintenance that early, they wouldn't have appreciated my (Houston we have problem, right now!!) wake up call. I'm waiting for the repair guy to come and have a look see at what's going on with it...

For the time being, the rain has stopped and the sun has come out. I expect we're going to have some more rain before it's completely over, tho.  I've opened the drapes to let in the sunlight. The kitty's have found sunny places to catnap. Curmudge is complaining he's cold ... for him being cold is a normal thing ..goes with the disease, I suppose.

I'll keep y'all posted on the repair thing... update soon.
