Monday I called the plumber in town to check my furnace - it was making a rumbling noise. Business as usual for me - it is a bearing in the motor so I need a new motor and the exhaust pipe is shot. He finally called yesterday to say he found another motor and wanted me to know cost before he ordered (how asinine can that be, I have no choice jackass!) it. The parts I need total about $1500; and a new furnace? well that would be at least $4500 installed. So what are you waiting for? Order the damned parts - I have people coming for Thanksgiving (which I told them on day one). Guestroom heat is no problem - each room has an electric baseboard heat. Downstairs where I live is a balmy 59F with the little electric heater in my bathroom turned toward my bedroom, the heater in my office (where I basically live) is not happily pumping out heat), and today I cleared off the radiator in the hall and got it lit - a little bit of heat but not much. Of course it has been snowing the last 2 days. And of course, yesterday is the day the Health Dept came for my annual inspection.
