A loud VRONK! and the power was out. Would've sucked less if I hadn't just come back from a Snugglie walk w/BG. On the upside, I found a $40 rebate check from the new AC. Didn't even know we got one. Acme Air must have done all the paperwork :) Only took 30mins before the power was back on. Remarkable how fast they get to these things after the Year of 1000 Hurricanes.
