Yesterday I didn't get much fibery stuff done. I cleaned out the garage. Yes, you read that right. I hate cleaning out the garage because most of the stuff out there is lawn equipment and Mickael stuff, but I had an ulterior motive. For quite a while now, our garage door hasn't really been working properly. Actually, it's the IR sensors that keep it from going down when someone is standing under it that aren't working properly. For some reason, the garage door will only go down by remote when its overcast or the sun is behind a cloud. If it's sunny, I can't get the garage door down unless I stand in the garage and hold the button on the wall down. This is a problem because my car lives in the garage. When I need to go somewhere if it's sunny, I have to back my car out of the garage, get out, go into the garage and stand there holding the button until it's all the way down, then go through the house and go out the front door, lock it, and hop in the car and go. If there are clouds out, I can sit in the car until the sun goes behind a cloud, hit the remote button and hope the cloud is big enough to hide the sun until the door is all the way down. On a day like today (overcast and rainy) I can come and go as I please and I don't have any trouble at all. This is why I really don't want to hire someone to come out and fix it. First of all, I'm going to have to pay $100 just to get them out here, then it will be overcast when they come, so the garage door will work perfectly, they won't find anything wrong with it, and they'll think I'm crazy. Second of all, do you have any idea how long it would take to explain what's going on - again, with the crazy thing. My theory is that something is reflecting light into one of the sensors on sunny days, so Phase I of Fix The Garage Door was to clean out the garage, organize stuff and get it farther back from the sensors. The garage is now MUCH neater, cleaner, and there is a big pile of junk that will be hauled off tomorrow! Unfortunately, the garage door still doesn't work in the sunshine. Phase II of Fix the Garage Door will be to rewire the sensors. I don't think this is going to fix them, but the wiring looks funny, so it won't hurt to redo it and make it better. I don't know what Phase III of Fix the Garage Door will be yet, I haven't come up with that one yet.
