Baby, it’s cold outside

Three degrees F this morning, in fact.  That’s -16 to you Celsius speakers.  Damn cold.  Which is why it was especially bad when our furnace died last Friday.  We now have a nice, shiny new furnace and heat pump, installed yesterday as a couple of electric space heaters struggled valiantly to keep the parts of the house we were in above 60 degrees.  So far the new system seems to be working quite well.  It’s not quite as quiet as I had hoped, but it’s not bad.  Looks like the humidifier needs fixing as well, but it’s a minor thing.

All things considered, I’d much rather have the air conditioning conk out at 90 than the furnace die at 20.
