Heater broke; got so freezing that clothes froze stiff


I’m fairly accustomed to freezing weather.

I’m from the north plus I’ve lived through twenty something severe winters up there.

The weather is consistently brutal; there’s severe freezing plus wind chill, not to mention the ice storms plus heavy snow fall. I’ve had plenty of experience scraping off cars plus driving in blinding snow. I’ve also spent a lot of time outdoors in the winter, trudging through snow plus shielding all exposed skin from the air to avoid frostbite. It was a modern experience for me, however, when my furnace failed last year plus I had to try to stay hot indoors for many days on end. You see, it was in the middle of the greatest blizzard we’ve had in years, plus I was resting at condo doing a pressing load of laundry in my toasty hot utility room, when swiftly I heard a hasty noise come from the furnace closet. I went to see what had happened, only to find that the furnace was no longer running. I tried to make adjustments to the control unit, but was unable to kickstart the furnace again. I then spent the next two hours calling every heating plus cooling company in a 20 miles radius, only to be told that every Heating plus A/C repairman was already booked for the next many days due to the bad weather. I spent the next two days trying to stay hot with a single space heater. It got so freezing in my home that my clothes which had been left in the washing device froze stiff.
