An Update

A very generous friend loaned us 5 space heaters for our 1100 square foot house. Friends are totally made of win.

Our hot water lines froze in the night. Good times!

Here’s how the kitties decided to keep warm.

Ssh! Don’t tell anyone that I told you this, but they even snuggled with the puppy.

I decided to clean the bathroom to stave off the cabin fever and move enough to keep warm. While I did that, Michael ventured out into the snowy wastelands to bring back fire. Okay, fire in the form of oscillating heaters, but they make heat and that’s the point here.

We decided to settle in for a movie (The Incredibles). We’d set up one of the heaters in the utility room where the hot water lines are located and turned the hot water all the way open in the kitchen sink and bathtub. About halfway through the movie, water started running in the kitchen. As I headed to the bathroom to check the tub, it began to run as well.

Hooray! Hot showers tonight!

So now, here we are with 5 space heaters running and the thermostat looks like this.

In case you can’t read the blurry shot, it says 71. Toasty. I generally refuse to run the central heat above 68.

Makes you appreciate the little things…

Although, I’d still like to bludgeon Murphy with that law of his.

  1. I have to have my regular dosage of The Incredibles. In discussing it with others, it’s become clear that many parallels are lost on the vast majority of people. I find that odd as most people are particularly good at some stuff and generally unappreciated for it. Perhaps that’s the point – that these people have become so jaded by their lack of being appreciated. It’s sad really.

    Oh, it totally rocks to have a warm house and hot water again!

  2. Y’all did the right thing- explore the options, get help and handle the situation… And NEVER once called the government… Y’all must be conservatives 😛
