I'm a YOOPER !!! On my 40 acres of heaven here in the northwoods ... among the deer, turkeys, bear, etc.

Ya ... it's really cold up here!
Thankfully, we didn't get as much snow as predicted, but the temps have been going way down ... way below zero at night.
So ... wouldn't you know ... my furnace quit! The first guy that came out couldn't find the problem ... he & another guy came out in the afternoon. They said it probably needed a part ... that might have to be ordered!
OH WELL. I could keep the upstairs liveable ... but didn't know if I could keep the basement water pipes from freezing. I've developed good cold-weather coping skills ... but this would be a real challenge!
By some miracle ... they did come back much later with the part! And, much to the surprise of all ... the furnace did start ... and is still running.
