The Most Expensive Mousetrap Ever

Our holiday week was quite eventful.  For some odd reason, a mouse decided to make a home inside our HVAC.  It didn’t work out for him because he shorted the capacitor.  It didn’t work out for us because it blew back all the way to the circuit breaker.  Who would have thought that we would have survived the derecho storm but not a little mouse?

Fortunately, we were able to switch the air conditioner breaker with the dryer.  Unfortunately, replacement parts for the circuit breaker installed in our 1968 townhouse are not legal (because they have a tendency to catch fire) so we need to get the whole circuit breaker replaced.

Of course, this had to happen during what I hope was the hottest week of summer.

Most. expensive. mousetrap. ever.

  1. Ugh. At least you were able to switch it temporarily while you wated to get it fixed. That could have been pretty miserable in last weeks heat!

    The last time I had a mouse, I was lucky enough to also have a cat. She played with the poor thing to death, instead of just putting it out of it’s misery.

    • Two days without AC is much better than what some people in my home state have been going through (at least ten-days without any electricity). Thankfully we have wonderful neighbors who let Wren and me stay at their house during the day and lent us a portable AC unit during the night.
