Boy oh boy, am I glad I buy and love coats and jackets. I know that my family feel the same after the weekend we had. Let me tell you, the very worst thing that could happen during the month of February. During one of the coldest months of the year, of the winter. February is always a super cold month. To have happen what happen to us was just disastrous.
Ok, here we go, just thinking about this gives me the chills.
Anyway, last weekend my family and I was enjoying a nice night in. It was cold outside so we all made plans to gather, eat, have cocoa, play some board games, then make it a Netflix night. We had just finished a rousing game of monopoly. It became intense too, how only monopoly can. One of my kids were stealing from the bank, I know it but I could not prove it. How we play, a person must be able to prove that someone is stealing from the bank. Then there is a whole trail and so on and so forth.
As I was saying, we had just finished with monopoly and everyone was getting ready to watch movies. Folks started changing into their pajamas; blankets were brought from the linen closest, slippers placed on feet. I had set out a little snacking tray along with some popcorn for everyone to munch from. We were really doing it big!
As we all sat there, enjoying the movie when my husband felt a change in the temperature. I agreed with him that it did feel a bit colder than usual. He ask our son to check the thermostat and see what it is set at. If it is below such a temperature to turn it up a degree or two.
He wanted to check if our furnace would kicked on or not. We had just had our HVAC system tuned up last year. We kept meaning to have the technician come and check it again.
Well, long story short the heat stopped working. We were forced to a call our heating contractor at Premium HVAC Services. They were able to send someone out that night.
In the meantime, we found our electric heaters in the closest and grabbed some extra blankets. Plugged in those heaters, bundled up, and everyone got a little closer to each other on that couch.
Waiting on the technician to come and save the night!
