Baby its cold inside

I knew my external propane tank was getting low.  Sure enough around 4 am I woke up to realize the furnace fan was running but it wasn't very warm outside of my down comforter.  I crawled out and verified that it was blowing cold air and so I pulled on layers of clothes and turned on lights.  I decided not to call my neighbor who is my propane guy until 6 as I wasn't that cold yet.  Mom had given me her small electric heater just yesterday and it was out in the car.  That is also where my down jacket was since I hadn't fully unloaded the car when I got home yesterday.  Muttering, I went out and got those along with the heavy duty extension cord from an outside bin.  

Once heat was coming from something I checked temperatures.  40*F outside and 56*F inside.  I fixed coffee and some instant oatmeal and called my neighbor at 6 am.  He came over with a full tank within 5 min and now it is again warm in here.  I gave him extra money for the quick response.  The guys here really do spoil me.

Bosley cat still isnt sure why we are up out of bed so early.


  1. Hate when that happens running out of prosper but at least for some more and will be good to go for a while now.

  2. Terrible when it is cold at 56 degrees. I'm just hoping we get to the mid-50s again this year. Glad you got some heat. I'm looking forward to heading to Ajo at the end of the month.

  3. I hate being cold! But wait... you live in Arizona!
