Brrrr.....



It is 20 something degrees outside. There are maybe six inches of snow. When I got up this morning I realized my heat wasn't on - though it was on last night when I went to bed. So I checked the thermostat. It is 60 degrees in here. According to the thermostat, the heat is on. I checked the pilot, and it is on. EEEEEEEK!!!!!!!!! I will have to get a service from the heating company. Shoot. This is NOT in this month's budget. At all.

I will call the big Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Company and someone will come over in a truck with my friend's name all over it. And I will smile, because I remember when my friend dragged into AA 20 years ago. There were no trucks with his name on them then. He has been such a success in every way in AA.

I had a pretty picture of snow this morning, but blogger is being naughty again. So, I will just be grateful if I can get this post posted.

*****************Update************************
I posted the picture of the snow on my little ponderosa pines on my deck. Aren't the little lights pretty? Now, if only the heating guy will get here and find out I only need a $2.00 part - or even $200.00 - Just not a $3,000 furnace. Please.

I just can't relate to that kind of weather.
But I guess I don't really have to, do I?

What a lovely picture! While here in England it's so warm that I've had to turn the heating off and I'm sitting by an open window at almost 10pm in just my underwear ...

Fingers crossed that your heating engineer friend brings you good news and a small bill!

Sober Chick said...

Ohhhhhhh, although there is snow masking everything that picture is so warm. I would love to see that out my window, but it ain't gonna happen here. For now I will depend on your pix.

Thanx 4 posting. I hope that all works out well with the heater and it is something very minute.

Lovely picture! I drove through that snow immediately after work to get to a meeting and boy it was well worth the trip! The snow cleared when the meeting was over. Have a pleasant evening!

MC I simply refuse to turn my heat on - I can not afford it right now. I told the girls if they were lucky they would get it as a Christmas present.
SNOW...OMG...please keep it out there.
I'll stick with the trees turning colors.
I see you,
JJ
