cold just plain cold

woke up this morning and thought - hey, the alarm clock woke me up, not the sound of the furnace. what the hell? well, i did some checking and the furnace was indeed on, but not working. it was 55 degrees in the dining room where the thermostat is. we were darn cold. well, i did some investigative work and then called the brother. he taught me everything i know about furnaces and he still works on them. i asked him if he knew what may be the issue and lo and behold, there is a diagnostic light on the furnace that tells me a $15 part is out. he can get it for me, but i have to wait and i have been waiting, in the cold, all day. he called a little bit ago and we're going to meet up in a few minutes to get the part and he'll tell me how to put it in.

cross your fingers or we may be knocking on your door tonight. never would have thought it - heat goes out on the coldest day of the year. did i flip off to many h2s and republican minivans over the weekend? i got a stomach ache to boot. want to hear some more whining? my pedometer bit the dust too.

WIERD. You discribed my morning. 55degrees and no heater. Though I don't know enough about the furnace to replace the parts- c-c-c-c-cold working from home today!

Our heater must have given your heater something, because it's the SAME DAMN THING OVER HERE. Except we are in no way adept at mechanical items and have Rose City Heating coming tomorrow morning. Until then, it's layered fleece in the house!
