But that would be a logical, perhaps even likely, explanation why the AC isn't working.

Quite true - interesting to find out the hard way.

Supposed to be rolling brown-outs with AC here in Dallas at some point this summer. In addition already fighting my own war against Mud Daubers and Carpenter Ants.

While this is true, generally most would mention the power being out, and maybe that therefore the AC isn't working, rather than just mentioning the AC.

Don't forget the fire ants after Friday's storm. I have a feeling this summer will be replete with drought and pestilence.

Ride with Gps - what's the best way to wirelessly just smack a button on a ride and have it ready to go?

Android or a proprietary device like Garmin or Wahoo?

I thought everything in Texas bites, stings, or has spines, anyway?

Water brings them up out of the soil. You will often see the mounds after a good rain.

Amdro is your friend. Watch where you walk!

They do, but the fire ants are some nasty biatches!

I use a Garmin, but I plug it into a computer and drag the file to the Garmin. Easiest way that I've found, but there may be better ways.

I have a house tarantula that hangs out on the side of my house; mud daubers, carpenter ants, beetles, snails, big black crickets that the birds love to eat, bunnies - holes in the yard with baby bunnies (nests), geckos, fire ants, and some other boring stuff like squirrels and birds.

When I was working at Cornell, we were talking with the new grad students in the department about the things we liked about living in Ithaca. Ithaca has SCADS of fireflies, aka lightning bugs. We asked them if they had fireflies where they came from. One young woman, who was from Georgia, said, "We don't have Fahr Flahs, but we do have Fahr Ants. Are they like that?"

I have heard that they even make rafts out of themselves and float around, if their anthill gets inundated.

I'm of the mind that you can't have an opinion on roundup and insecticide til you've spend a few years living here.

We have a couple of 520s, and they still work great. I primarily use a 1030+ because I can see it better and hear the chimes better on it.
