moth and rust

Last night I spent a few hours and got the tensioner pulley on the car replaced. It’s been squeaking for months and is a relief to have addressed. Quiet cars are a good thing.

Saturday morning a portion of my southern roof’s shingles blew off in the high winds. It was fridgid out, and not fun to do, but my brother Jeff came down from Kokomo and we repaired it. $50 worth of materials and an hour of freezing our butts off on the roof is far cheaper than paying a roofer to come fix it.

This morning when Mel and I woke up, the house was really chilly. Turns out, the blower has stopped working in the furnace. I’m not sure if other parts are broken as well, but at least that much is broken. For that, I have an HVAC person coming out this afternoon. Even if it is just the fan, I don’t have easy access to parts, so it’s simpler just to pay a repairman, I think.

Living in a corrupt world can sure wear on you. At the very least, it makes me long that much more for the incorruptable world to come.

  1. Yeah, our furnace has had trouble lighting for the last week. I had a repair man come out yesterday and he fixed it until last night when we had the same problem. I think I fixed it good this time, we’ll see.

  2. Did you get your furnace up and running?

    I got a spare electric heater if you need it 😉

  3. Yeah, the furnace is working again. Unfortunately, the repairman broke the pvc drain for the air conditioner, then left without fixing it. :\
