Our furnace turned off while we were on vacation
My husband, Todd, does a lot of traveling for his job.
He gets to travel all over the United States, and sometimes, he even gets to travel outside of the States.
My favorite trips are the trips that I get to go with him. I do not get to go with him very often, so we make the most of it when I do get to go. The last trip that I went on was by far my favorite. It was so much fun. We traveled to Asia, and we got to stay for about two weeks. We had the time of our lives sightseeing, and the best part was that our hotels were all paid for by his company. It was certainly a trip of a lifetime, but something happened at home while we were gone that we were unaware of. There was a bad storm one night, and the power was off for about half a day. It would not have been that big of a deal if our furnace would have turned back on after the power outage. It was about a week before we got home when the power went off, so by the time we got home, the furnace had been off for an entire week. This was in the middle of January, and it was below twenty degrees outside. We literally came home to a freezing house. The pipes were frozen, and we were so upset. My husband tried to fire up the furnace when we got home, but it would not turn on. We ended up having to call a HVAC technician to come fix the furnace for us. We replaced most of the pipes in our home, and in the end it was quite an expensive ordeal.
