Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Somewhere Else!

From Janelle:

This is the time of year I’m most grateful that we live where we live and not on the east coast where blizzards blanket everything in sight although we have had issues in central California with freezing temperatures and icicles clinging devastatingly to damaged citrus.  One grower commented that the fruit can withstand the frosty temperature although it is normally not this cold this early.  Forty-six degrees during my morning commute is BRRRRRR, COLD for us.

The week before the Mixology Party my new fabulously cozy radiant floors weren’t emanating their usual comfyness but I thought that Lewis was messing with the thermostat.  I had hoped that the new system would eliminate the turn it up turn it down turn it up turn it down battle and it has to some extent but my house is not as welcomingly warm as I had hoped when Lewis is home.



By Saturday reluctant acknowledgement that the radiant heat was indeed, not heating resulted in an emergency call to the furnace guy who was unfortunately tied up.  He did, however, volunteer to come Sunday but since the party was over by then we agreed on Monday when he reported back that someone had unplugged the unit attached to the water heater in the garage.

Mortified that he had come out for something so ridiculous but relieved that he hadn’t made a weekend visit I called Lewis and asked if he had any idea who could have done such a thing.  “Well, I think that it might have been me.  I unplugged something, wasn’t sure what the cord attached to and forgot to plug it back in.”



From Lewis:

What!!  I’m finally responsible for something I did do.  All I can say is oops shit happens.  I thought Janelle had overworked the heater system even though the temperature was only as low as the 60’s before last week but I did forget to replug the heater system when I needed an outlet the other day. Soooo  sorry.
