Okay, It is really cold...

School has been canceled for the second day because wind chills are predicted to be below -10. In typical DD fashion, that means our furnace doesn't work. I woke up this morning and thought, wow, it must be really, really cold. Our bedroom is always cold, but it was much worse than normal at 7 AM this morning. Well, I went downstairs and the thermostat said 52. I keep the temp low--but not THAT low. So, I checked the pilot. No such luck... the pilot was burning bright. So, I've called the furnace company, and they are to be here before 1 PM. Meanwhile, I'm baking anything I can think of, just to put extra warmth in the house. Phone just rang--the technician is on the way!!!! Yea!!!

Ironic that school is canceled so children can stay home, warm and safe. Hmmmm.... Not in my world.

Just popped across here from Jerry! Sounds like 'baking' is an excellent solution - internal and external heating.
Cheers

Heh....love to connect folks. Good to know that your fingers are warm enough to type.

I don't think Mcewen or I can comment on the cold...living in Atlanta and California et al....

Cheers,
Jerry

We also are enduring this "arctic blast." Hope your furnace got fixed - and that you now have some goodies to enjoy the rest of the week!
