Blizzard '08!

There is a path to the front door!

See that little green thing sticking out of the snow? That is a 12 inch ruler. This was taken at about 2 PM today. It has snowed at least another 2 inches since then.

Another picture of the front of the house:

On top of all the snow, our furnace went out yesterday afternoon. Geoff was home from work and decided to change the furnace filter. After he put the new filter in, the furnace would not turn back on. He called me at work in a panic, and I decided to leave early. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise because the roads were bad, but not as bad as they would be a couple hours later.

After putting a call in to our home warranty company, we sat and waited for the furnace repair people to call us and hopefully tell us they were coming out. Just in case, we ventured out to the Sears Hardware down the street, on Henderson Rd., and bought a couple fancy space heaters. Luckily, the furnace guy showed up at about 530. Turns out the transformer in the furnace was blown and just needed replaced. Since it was under our home warranty, this only cost us a copay of $55. Looks like we can return at least one of the space heaters. The other one has proven quite useful in heating the colder-than-the-rest-of-the-house kitchen and family room.

As far as food, I defrosted a quart container of my Chicken Tortilla Soup and had a yummy warm lunch after shoveling the driveway. Oh yes, I did help. Here is proof!

It is far away, a little Marla Hooch-ish ala A League of Their Own, but proof nonetheless.
