Here comes the sun

This morning, after weeks of inquiry, estimates, inspections, construction, further inspections, paperwork, and appointments, Kathleen and I threw the switches to turn on the solar panels that Solar City has installed on our roof. 

This afternoon, as the sun heats up Baltimore to a muggy ninety-five degrees, it will also be running the fan on our air conditioner.
