Day 44: Thankful Today for my Portable Heater
The cold snuck up on us. It was in the low 80's and high 70's one week and then all of a sudden the high was the mid 50's. So evenings and mornings have turned cold in just a few days. I turned on my heat for the first time since the end of winter and nothing. No click of the baseboard heaters. No sound of the heated water moving through the pipes. Nothing.
Thankfully, I have a portable heater bought some time ago. I dragged it out, wiped off the dust, plugged it up and hoped. A slight click and a few pops of oil heating up and within the hour, I was warm again.
