Yay, the furnace guy came late this afternoon, and we now have heat again! Whoot! It was getting really cold in the house, especially since it was snowing last night and the past three days haven't gotten above 35. A couple very small cheapo (around $15) portable heaters can only heat so much of a room.
We're still getting a fair amount of water in the basement, so I have to regularly check on it and click on the old sump pump. It won't go on of its own accord.
Just a reminder that I have a link party going on over at the Sunburnt Cow. You can link up handmade items - whether you have them for sale or not. You can also link up anything you have that's vintage/old fashioned/prim.
