I'm watching the news & I got a question---how come with this ZERO kinda weather, in NYC & Boston kinda areas, they refer to it all as DEADLY ARTIC BLAST & up here it's just another day in the barn sissy ass city people--seems like they even gotta tell city dumb-ass's to bundle up & not stay out for more then 30 seconds or they'll freeze solid

Stove was crankin when i went to bed and the house was around 75. got down stairs and it was still on side draft and glowing orange, but the heat output was pitiful. thermostat read 60.5... Go to click on the furnace to help catch up and a coil burnt out on the new furnace that i never really used yet other than to test it. seemed to be a bunch of crap coal got in my old Resolute and it took a bunch of poking and shaking to free it back up and get the air really moving through it again. blaschak nut coal btw, if anyway was curious.
it was a frustratingly slow, cold morning trying to get the house back up to temp with it being 5 degrees outside. Not really the best feeling as a provider today when i went back upstairs to put another blanket on my very pregnant wife in our cold home before i left for work.
