If you haven’t noticed, it’s cold. Fucking cold. In fact, it’s so cold, we need a song for it.
Oh, the weather outside is bullshit
Too crappy for even a fire pit
And going outside is on hold
It’s fucking cold, fucking cold, fucking cold
So where I’m at, we’re going to have lows in the 30’s and highs only in the 50’s. That is totally unacceptable. I chose to leave the wasteland to come here and I don’t need the weather following me. I’m just a little bit sensitive to this whole temperature thing right now and I think I have a good reason.
There is no heat in my goddamn house.
Yup, the HVAC unit that failed on me a few times this year and let me broil (I guess bake is a more appropriate cooking metaphor) in my house over the summer has now fucked me from the other direction. And being a guy, that’s an undesirable situation. Uh, a straight guy, I guess I need to clarify.
So, if you hadn’t guessed, it’s cold in here. Not as cold as it is out there, but it’s in the mid 60’s. Let me check… Current temp 66 degrees, feels like 40 degrees. So, similar to how I went into emergency mode when the cooling went out, I’ve done the same for my heating crisis. I closed all the rooms off and I’m heating the bedroom with a tiny little space heater.
This exact one, from the 80’s, shown almost actual size.
So my plan tonight is to not get hypothermia, put every blanket I have on the bed, and call the A/C people tomorrow. Will it be a $50 fuse or a $5000 replacement? Who knows? Can’t wait to find out.
