But now just cold.
I discovered on Tuesday that a small water tube to my humidifier burst, flooding out my basement just enough to make things miserable. I've learned a long time ago never to put valuables or anything else you don't want wet in the basement so most of it wasn't a loss. The tube probably burst in the morning and I didn't discover it until around 2:30 pm.
I spend all afternoon cleaning up and go to turn on the heat. Nothing. A few hours later, nothing. The gas guy comes in the next morning and painfully tells me that the circuit board is fried due to the water and I won't have heat until Friday.
So now I'm just cold.
I do have a giant heater, kerosene? out in the garage. You know, that LDS three day emergency kit thing, but I don't think I can put it on carpet and truthfully I'm scared too anyway. I have a small heater sitting next to me right now so we aren't freezing. Just cold and glad I have a lot of quilts to use.
I'm just grateful the Service Guard plan we purchase every month covers everything and it wasn't a water pipe. Yeah, it's expensive, but sure beats having to come up with the cash to fix this.
Now I just hope it's the circuit board and I don't need a whole new heater. It's too cold to quilt right now so I'll post when I can.
Took out the kerosene heater. No way will that work in my house as the rooms are too small and the caution page was filled up completely. I know my FIL meant well when he was convinced the world was ending (long story) and bought us the heater but it's really meant for industrial usage.
