Today life is back to normal, if you call this normal. Yesterday Chuck was off work again for a snow day. We ended up with 10 inches of snow, which by itself is not bad. It was the 2 inches of ice that was the problem.
Yesterday morning was exciting. Chuck went out to shovel and hear a neighbor across the street standing on her porch talking on her phone yelling her address. He said he heard her yell her address a couple of times and went over to see if all was well. It was not, she told him that the house was on fire! Her husband had been at the neighbors shoveling snow and had gone back into the house. My kind hearted husband went into the house to see if Ron was alright. I didn't know if I should hug him for being such a good man or to yell at him for taking such a big risk. All is fine. The motor on the furnace blew up and caught fire. The fire was small and there was mainly smoke and more smoke. Thank God! They will get a new furnace and then have to do some serious cleaning. As serious as that was, it could have been much worse.
