Uh-Oh

It appears that our heating unit stopped working sometime during the night. As it's 28 degrees outside, we sort of need heat.

    At least it never snows in Alvin. ;-)

  2. That's right. So I have nothing to worry about.

    Have 2 words for you: Morso woodstove. Danish designed, very efficient, off the grid. Keeps us going up in the Catskills. (Okay, so that was a lot more than 2 words.) Splitting the logs also helps you keep warm!

  4. Splitting the logs? Surely you jest. I'm way too old for that kind of work.

  5. We had to replace our furnace on Tuesday. JB Stanley lost her furnace (flooded) yesterday. The terrorists have won.

  6. No emergency heat strips in the unit?

  7. They don't seem to realize it's an emergency.

    Okay, so I exaggerated. Electric wood-splitters are to be had at Home Depot, and we use one. But don't call me Shurley.

  9. You and Judy will just have to snuggled together for warmth until the temps go back into the 70s.

  10. I thought it never got below freezing in Alvin. Just think how cold it would be if not for that pesky global warming.

  11. we didn't have a freeze last year, and the temp's jumped up to 38, so it didn't freeze for long. Still, it would be nice to have some heat.

    You don't split logs anymore? Here! I'll split some for you!

    log(AB)=log(A)+log(B)

    log(A/B)=log(A)-log(B)


    Stay warm!

    It's 42 and rainy in New York, if that helps.

  15. This is the reason we have a fireplace, even though the thought of fire is still a little unsettling. Hope you can get someone to fix it quickly.

  16. Yeah, that's Seepy Benton.

    When I was in Australia (Perth, on the Western edge) I was told that most houses did not have furnaces.

  17. With all the heating up of the (net) waves, it must be warm in Alvin even without the heating unit ;)

    'Course, these things only break when they're needed--and on the weekend to boot!

  18. Hey, Red Ryder, we'um want update on this!

  19. Heat still not working, but it's much warmer today. Which is good.
