The return as I found it under the home, open. Brand new Infinity system full of dirt, blowing dust throughout the home.


The access door to the furnace.


My office.


The missing condensate trap, installed.

It was sunny, not warm in the slightest,and I did enjoy the snow on the second day, could even go as far as to say I now miss it. The first day, however, I hated the very existence of life itself. I was in shock it was so cold!

Btw, that is probably the world's first four thousand dollar condensate trap.

Boy o Boy you need to take your tutu off.

Check out this video. You will notice that this Canadian girl is not only smiling, but she isn't even wearing a hat or gloves.

The northern half of the state is much colder than the southern half,they're even different growing zones.

Mom grew up in the northeast around Valentine and she has some pictures of one monster blizzard. National guard had to come rescue people because all that was showing through the snow drifts were the tops of roofs. Talk about artic waste land! What you saw was pretty typical temps in the southern half for this time of year with lows in the teens and highs around freezing. At least you now have a story to tell the future grand kids...how you survived two days of a Nebraska winter LOL.

Hastings was a nice and cow free town, no smell. We traveled up there to Mernard's. That is an awesome store! Picked up two square to round boots for the floor returns from there. I don't think I can find that at Lowes or The Home Depot down here. Good store indeed.

Yes, I will tell very tall tales of man vs. arctic wild for years to come!

Cool video! Yeah, gloves I did not have until the second day, made it a bit more bearable. My first day was spent trying to hide my frozen tears on my cheeks from my boss.

Pretty amazing that they needed a PHD from Texas to fix an HVAC unit in Nebraska! That is really a pull to go that far.
It's the main boss' personal house. He bought the house that his wife grew up in and renovated it, somewhat. Never had central a/c prior to this messed up install we had to go fix.

There's an a/c company maybe 10 minutes from his place, the thing is no one is willing to come out as they're doing installs elsewhere or simply didn't want to. They didn't consider this a priority (no heat in 20 degrees in the sun in Nebraska not a priority?) and said it would be 3-4 weeks before they were able to make it out. So he paid us two, the main hvac guys for our (his) company, to come up immediately.

I guess the "Main Boss" Made it big time. Good for him. Thanks for the great pictures Doc. Looks really peaceful there. Frosty and his wife look very happy.

PS It cracks me up when I see studs whacked off like that. Were they holding up the ridge pole????

Yes, the main boss is a millionaire a few times over. He actually owns all but one home on his street up there as well as over 140 acres. Plus he owns homes and land in Cali and Texas.

It was nothing for him to shell out 4k. And since moving the system would've required tearing open walls and about a week's worth of work, he was seriously contemplating simply buying another system and leaving the brand new one that we just fixed where it was, null and void in the crawlspace. And that's a high dollar Carrier Infinity system. But since we got it working normally it's all good as is.

There are a few foundation issues under there that need addressing. Poles are leaning, some wood that's supposed to be supporting the frame is loose (I found out when I was pulling myself on it and it just gave), bricks cracked and just a nightmare all around. It's going to have to be re-worked, me thinks, so yes, it was frighteningly horrific under there. But I'm no foundation expert, just know scary and "that's not right!" when I see it.

Well, there are some things that are priceless. I guess this home falls in that category for your boss.

Again, thanks for the great Pictures. Nebraska sounds like its home of Dinty Moore. Good place for a big pot of Venison Stew.
