Saturday morning we woke up as usual, at the normal time, getting ready to start a Saturday full of activity. Well, the house felt a bit cool to me, so I checked the thermostat....working fine, except I could hear the furnace running, but there was no air blowing through the vents. I could smell the "heat" or "burning" in the living room, so asked Alex if he would check it out. We shut it off and decided to check it later. Alex mowed the lawn..(hopefully for the last time this summer), and then opened up the furnace to check it out. Lets just say it ended up being WAY more EXTENSIVE! Alex pulled the whole thing apart and spent the entire day testing parts and repairing melted wiring. Later, my Dad offered to come help. They continued testing parts and decided what the problem might be. It was now LATE and I would have no heat for who knows how long. NOT GOOD. Luckily my Mom was there, because she arranged for us to borrow some space heaters from my grandparents. Now I won't have to worry about my girls (and me) freezing our rears off while we decide what to do, and exactly which part to order.
