First Blizzard of 2009

Apparently we had our first major snow fall on the same day, two years in a row. How about that.

Starting Tuesday morning and going until mid-day Wednesday, we got about 14 inches of snow and lots of wind and cold weather! It's -7 today. Brrrr.
Yesterday we ventured out to take Ian to work and then the kids and I spent a chilly day inside. As in our house was cold! We picked Ian up and headed to the post office to send some stuff to Ian' parents and then came home. Ian even complained about how cold the house was.
Finally, after the kids were in bed, I looked at the thermostat and it said it was only 63.3 degrees in the house. Well, that explained a lot! Ian looked around and tried to figure out what was going on and eventually made his way outside. Our air intake and exhaust pipes for the heater were clear of snow so he pulled the pipe off and it turns out our darling little Ady had put rocks in the pipe, preventing air from being sucked into the furnace. Awesome. At least it was an easy fix. The heater ran most of the night to warm the house back up but it's nice and toasty now!
