    None of the above.

    This time of year I try to become a crawldog and replace those poor distribution system.

    It not much standing room but with all the leaks in the ducts it sure is nice working in condition area.

    Nothing I hate more then working under the sun andn around a bunch of heat rejecting equipment.

    Sign Crawldog.

    That's when the roof is burning your feet right through the sole and you're tiptoeing your way back to the small shade behind the rooftop unit.

    I hate rooftop units.

    They're the least imaginative location to place mechanical equipment; the worse as far as allowing safe maintenance and decent monitoring; a giant drain on efficiency, condensers are not happy in the full sun either; and finally, just plain destructive to a roof that asks nothing more than to keep the rain out. How lame.

    In the winter, it starts all over again, with the roof top furnaces. Useless garbage. There is always a better way than the poor compromise of putting all the vital building parts up on the roof.

    Good thing you keep yourself moist and tender while you're being roasted, you wouldn't want to be burned to a crisp, it would spoil the taste.

    When I did rooftop work I remember putting duct tape on my boots to keep the melting tar off the soles. But on nicer days the roof was a great place to eat lunch.

    They cooked an egg in a parking lot on the local news yesterday - took 20 minutes time.
