Still cold... still no heat. Because of all the rain and frozen ground and melting ice, our furnace is surrounded by water (in the crawlspace) so the repairman could not work with it last night. Jeff is home today pumping water out of the crawlspace so he can put some boards down to make it safe for the repairman to get to it to see what is wrong. Then we will probably need a part and hopefully will not have to wait long for that.

The good news is that the temperature today is supposed to be a balmy 33 degrees. It's only 20 degrees right now. We have a fire in the fireplace, a space heater in the hall and a little compact heater we are using to keep warm. The kids and I might have to take off if the smokiness from the fireplace becomes too irritating.

Jeff got very little sleep since he babysat the fire all night and I slept a few hours. I could almost curl up under some blankets for a nap. Actually, I might bake something in the oven for some more heat. :)
