It's snowing. Normally I'd like that. Not today.
This morning the furnace decided to go haywire. It burns fuel oil just fine, it just doesn't heat the house. When I turned the thermostat off it kept burning fuel oil as well as ever.
Around the same time the hot water thought it was time to take a vacation. The water heater still works. Barely anything to absolutely nothing comes out of the taps when I request hot water. No problem with the cold water. Lots of cold water any time I ask for it.
At least I don't live in Haiti. Or Nashville / Middle Tennessee (although I have plenty of Nth cousins X times removed living in eastern Tennessee). Or Louisiana. Or Iraq. Or Afghanistan. Or wherever else things are going to suck way more than my life.
