The Second Death of the Microwave/Convection Oven

Aaaargh.  As you no doubt recall, our over the range microwave/convection oven started tripping the circuit breaker last December.  After an extensive search for a different (better) model, we realized that any model other than what we had would require cabinet work.  In order for the door to swing open, the box would have to be moved forward.  We ordered a new one, had it delivered, and lo and behold, it fixed itself; until last night.  If we so much as plug the wretched thing in, it trips the breaker.  It is so aggravating.  So, we've ordered a new one, and we're having it installed even if it miraculously heals itself again.  We're not happy about the timing.  We considered buying a Brevelle counter top oven for use until we can get to Oregon and cabinet work, but we really have no space for it.  Timing is everything.
The weather continues to be good.  The winds are just flukey.  It goes from calm to really windy and then back.  It has quit howling at night which it did the first week, so that's good.  I think so far it's been a better November than last year.


  1. Timing is often a big deal with a house on wheels. Hope your new microwave works without a hitch!

    I am looking forward to returning to Tucson in Feb.

  2. Your pictures are killing me. So cold here I refuse to go outdoors.
