When I got upstairs, I decided that it was time to put the air conditioner away for the winter. There was a little water collected in it which I drained. I wiped down all four filters and then dismantled the hose and door vent. Then I tucked it into its nook behind the curtain. See you next May or June! You did a fabulous job this Summer. Thank you so much.
I got my first air conditioner on wheels in 2002* and started tracking the dates that I set it up and put it away each year. After all these years, toss in global warming and it's pretty easy to guess accurately when the key dates will be.
*meowmensteen's comment send me back to 2002 where I noted that, in fact, my first wheeled air conditioner was procured in 1999. 2002 was when I started this journal. Record now set straight :)
