Late yesterday we got our heat and water back. It was nice to have a bit of heat. I can only drink so much coffee and consume so much stew to stay warm. So I slept like a log last night. Of course, sometime early this morning the power went out and it didn't take long for things to cool down again. By 9:30am or so, our power was restored. (The power plant here has 4 generators and last time I was told, only one of them was operational.) Cue furnace to conk out again. Luckily, this time I remembered the small space heater buried away in the hall closet. It didn't take long for that little gizmo to make an appearance. I used it sporadically (didn't want to blow the power again) but by just a little after the noon hour the furnace was behaving once again. Hallelujah indeed!
