YAY!!! February Thaw!!!!

Seems like we're about to get that 'break' I've been praying for. Temps were up to mid 30s today - tomorrow we're supposed to be mid 40s - then 50s for Sunday. Monday and Tuesday are supposed to reach mid 60s!!! Wahoo!!! Breaking out the grill, shopping for BIG steaks!!! I could move right into spring - but doubt that will happen yet - still have the rest of Feb. then March - and possibly April - but maybe it won't be quite so cold for the rest of it!

Last night the furnace quit again. I guess it didn't really 'quit' - just that the furnace shut off and the blower kept going. All it took was for the thermostat to be turned off, then back on. I'm now thinking that part of this is in the circuit board. The new circuit boards attempt starting 3 times. This one (old) in our furnace only tries once. The debate now is 'try to nurse this through the rest of the winter' or 'start shopping for the new furnace' - and shopping for a new one is winning because this one is 1990 which means that the furnace could have been made well before that -.....

The eBay deal on the dehumidifier was bad. I paid for a new dehumidifier - got a 7 y/o one from the seller - and eBay/Paypal is siding with the seller. I promised to 'bad mouth' them every chance I got (so here's my first posting). Don't think eBay will be getting anymore of my business - all I ended up doing was wasting $80. which isn't the end of the world but doesn't do a lot for my disposition. Dehumidifier will be bought new - with a manufacturers warranty - but it will have to wait a while. I am finding that if I vent enough (hot air outside) the condensation isn't a problem - so I'm asking myself if I need it anyway - I know I won't need it in a/c season -

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!! I'll be grilling a big fat medium rare steak - did I say thick?????

It wouldn't light when it got in the teens because it couldn't draw enough DC power to open the sail switch. Between a new circuit board and a new converter it has worked fine. I know about the half sleeping with one ear cocked to hear the furnace ignite.
Glad someone else has experienced that - we put in a new sail switch - in fact the only original things in the furnace is the ignitor, circuit board, & burner. It's been out and on the work bench 15 times......I'm not ready to turn it into a piece of yard sculpture.....

At least we're going to have a break in the weather -
