Hmm, apparently it's kinda cold out there.

Our furnace cut out early Friday morning. It was a balmy +1C outside that night so sleep was snuggly. By morning the house was a tad chilly. Thankfully the service folk came by quickly to have a look and replaced a control board. In technical terms is was apparently 'rather confused'. Unfortunately the source of the confusion appears to have been a leak in an overflow tube which is conveniently placed directly above the confused hardware. The damn think shut down again a few hours later :-p We bundled kids off to my folks for the night, and got everyone settled in then returned home to keep the pipes from freezing up. I'll light a fire (in the fireplace for those of you with insurance fraud on your minds). There are a few old baseboard heaters around to test out too.

/me sacrifices a bottle of wd-40 and a new air filter to the furnace diety
Then prays fervently that we can avoid something like this
