Oh No! Say It Ain't So...!

We woke up this morning to chilly air and ice cold floors. Our furnace did something weird last night. Yeah. Weird. It didn't warm the air. Now there's a fella trying to figure out why. He's been trying since 8:15am. Still no warm air.

okay. It's not this cold. But it's cold nonetheless.

I have no interest in turning back in time...my middle name is NOT Donner!

Well, this is going to be a short post. It's too cold to type - even with my fingerless gloves.Hopefully, in a short time I can be warming myself by the furnace again! Until then, it's too cold to work - so you need to stand in for me andGo make something beautiful!

Edited at 11:15 - Hurrah!
We have heat!
thanks to a new mother board - I don't know what that is, but
I'm so glad we have a new one!

Oh No-o-o-o....Hope you get the furnace issue resolved soon!!
You mentioned the Donner's. It is snowing furiously right now & it has literally snowed for the last 5 days. I told DH yesterday that I felt like my last name was Donner!!
"It just NEVER freekin' ends!!"
Stupid...Stupid Weather!!
Stay Warm!!
Love,
Marilyn
xxoo
p.s. If I ever complain of the heat of summer please gently remind of this relentless winter!!

Poor Tristan...how awful for you! I guess you don't have a fire place..maybe it's time you think about putting one in!! LOL I hope this writing finds you finally warmed up and ready to create. Come on down to West TX...we're having great weather this week...upper 60's-70 degrees...springs in the air and so are the allergies...oey vey. The price of lovely weather.

Take care, my friend, and keep warm.

xxoo,
Georgina

I hope you get heat fast! Even though it isn't REALLY cold here (it's all relative, you know) my house is always cold in the winter and generally hot in the summer. Most houses in California are not insulated and mine is no exception. Since the temp in the house in around 60 in the morning, I have to turn the heat on just to get the 'chill' out of the air. Of course, as soon as it heats up to around 70, I turn it off and back down it goes. But when I'm working and such, it doesn't usually bother me. In any case, I'm sending you warm thoughts! ;-)

Hugs,
Tamerie

Oh, that's terrible!!! Try and stay warm as best as you can. Snuggle up in all your blankets and drink hot chocolate, coffee, tea...or all of them!!! Send warm thoughts your way...Theresa

Jingle said...

Dude, that sucks. Sorry. I hope you can get it working properly again soon!

peggy gatto said...

Since I just read this 8:45am Ca time, I don't have to say get warm soon, cause you are!!
yay

friedaquilter said...

So happy you've got your heat back and that merry dance looks fantastic! As do the fingerless gloves! I feel a must-have purchase coming on!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Okay sweetie...all furnaces are now run the same way as our computers are run; with motherboards. That is the main *brain* that tells it what to do when the rheastat on your inhouse thermostat drops below a certain level, it reads that and turns the furnace on.....
More than you wanted to know, eh?
Get warm Sweetie!!!!

XXOO!!
Anne
my word verification is TRAMP???? :D

julietk said...

Glad you are up and dancing again I hate cold and we are having the worst time here in London for years.
Still it's a good excuse to stay home and craft :-D

Sue said...

SO glad that you have heat again! Four years ago, in the midst of a very, VERY cold January, our gas furnace died. For two days we had no heat and I developed a serious appreciation for our forefathers.

Beadwright said...

Ahhh that darn heater. I really dislike being cold. Glad you have the heat back on. Snuggle up and take it easy today.

Craftymoose Crafts said...

I'm glad your heat is back on! What is it with these oil burners? Our switch burnt out the night before the big storm we had a few weeks ago.
Luckily they were able to fix it in about an hour!

Debby said...

Yeah!! Glad you have your heat back!!! Brrrrr...

Malisa said...

I don't know what it is either, but it sound EXPENSIVE!!! Love your dancing outfit! It would go so well with your fingerless gloves! :)

Oh Tris...not having a furnace for heat in winter is like not having AC in the south in August. Bad news all around. Still, you have sweet Dusty to keep you toasty or maybe it's the other way around. Always adore your old photos...they are so full of emotional and joy. Sea Witch

Sugar and Spice Art Confections said...

Oh No! Poor Tristan and Dusty...good thing your name ISN'T Donner! LOL...you crack me up! Glad to hear you got it repaired ok. Stay warm on this windy day.

jaz@octoberfarm said...

Claudia said...

Oh no! Though it is not quite the same, we lost power here for several hours this weekend because of the snowstorm. No heat. Very, very chilly. I sure hope all has been resolved and that you are warm again.

Yeah Tristan! Love your picture of your joy!!! You get me every time!

Bisous, Anita

Valarie said...

A mother board? That sounds like something from Star Trek....well, whatever it is, I'm glad you've got it. Have a warm day.
xxoo Valarie

mary helen said...

Awwww...being cold is the worst! Glad to see at the end of your post that all is warm agian, thank goodness for motherboards and the furnace man who knew how to fix it!

Createology said...

I am so glad you got a new Mother board and now your heater is working. There is no comfort in being cold. Keep creating...

vicki archer said...

Nothing like a motherboard (whatever that is) to crank things back up.....glad you are warm again, xv.

mo.stoneskin said...

But they are nice finger gloves, that's for sure.

A Thousand Clapping Hands said...

Those motherboards will do it every time. Anything with the name mother in it is sure to make things better. Well, I take that back...not ANY name with the word Mother. Stay warm.
