Amid all of the extreme weather events surrounding us, I arrived home in our house in Abbotsford Monday afternoon to find that our furnace had stopped working. A call to our furnace repair people indicated that they couldn’t repair it until the next day.
We all had different responses. The house was already cold. Andrew indicated that he had no problem with cold. Lauren seemed fine. Adam was engrossed in electronic games (as usual) and was oblivious to temperature. The dogs whimpered. Jordan showed up downstairs hours later wearing a sweater, toque and earmuffs. A very cute photo was taken. One which she has refused me permission to post. Even though I eventually offered money.
My response was to suggest that we all watch tv covered in blankets. I also suggested, looking at Pam , that it might be a night to cuddle close together and share body warmth. I believe Pam rolled her eyes.
Pam’s response to the problem? Perhaps spurred on by my response, she headed to UTube to view her favorite Do It Yourself site. (One which she had used in building her She/Shed in the back yard, with trusses and a skylight )
Within no time she had fixed the furnace! The earmuffs were put aside by Jordan. Cuddling was unnecessary. The next day the furnace repair was cancelled with our furnace man jokingly offering Pam a job. UTube (and superPam) saved the day. Do It Yourself saved the day!
