Losing Heat During a Blizzard

He came a few hours early to repair the furnace.

Last winter was one of the hardest winters that my family has ever experienced. My grandfather passed away unexpectedly in December, and it took quite a toll on the family. To make matters even worse, we had planned a huge Christmas party at our house that we simply couldn’t cancel because many friends and family members had already bought flights to fly down for it. Over forty people were planning to attend the event. The night before the scheduled party, we had the biggest blizzard our little town had ever seen. By the next morning, there was over five feet of snow on ground, and everything was frozen. Unfortunately, our furnace decided to quit on us the night of the blizzard, and no one realized it until we all woke up the next morning freezing cold. My sister and her family had already arrived, and they were staying in our two guest bedrooms up stairs. She is one of those people who always speaks her mind, and she had a lot to say that morning. Thankfully, my husband’s best friend, Dave, is an HVAC technician, and he planned on attend the party that afternoon. He came a few hours early to repair the furnace. The roads were a mess because of the snowstorm the previous night, so Dave wasn’t able to go and pick up the part need for the furnace. He was able to jimmy rig the thing enough to get it to turn on for a few hours, and we were very grateful to have a warm house when our guests arrived. We will never forget that crazy day, and we are forever grateful for Dave and his friendship.
