Have you ever noticed, when an appliance or whatever breaks down it's almost always on a weekend, after hours? As a storm front rapidly pushed through our area, a loud thunderclap woke me at 5 a.m., Dec. 14. I jumped up and noticed that I could still see a nightlight so figured electricity was still on. I noticed a clicking sound later and kept trying to find the source in my kitchen. That night, around 7 p.m., I went to get frozen yogurt from my freezer and it was partially melted. This set off a 2 1/2 hour search for an appliance repair dealer that offered 24/7 service. The yellow pages were of no help so I went online and thankfully found St. Augustine Appliance and Refrigerator Repair. Owner David Godwin came to the rescue and within a short time arrived and fixed the compressor issue. David is a congenial and knowledgeable young man and it was a pleasure doing business with him.


I plan to tattoo his number on my body for the next electrical disaster that befalls my life - after hours.
