Sometimes the winter season can feel very long. It just seems like the cold weather does not go away. The snow seems to keep coming back as well. The winter where I live often seems to be longer than the summer. I am the type of person who needs a long summer. I need the warm weather. It affects my life a lot by having cold weather. It affects me even more when it I’d cold and my furnace is not working. One time we were right in the middle of a blizzard. There were a bunch of travel band. People were getting into accidents everywhere. I was of course safe in my home. I did not go into work. I couldn’t even see across the street from me. The temperatures outside were cold. K was in the middle of cooking dinner. I was making soul for a couple of days. I noticed that the house was getting colder. Usually when I cook the house and my body feels warmer. Not this time though. I went to look at the thermostat. It said it was pretty cold in my house. It seemed as if it kept dropping every time I went back to look at it too. Unfortunately, I could not even ask for an HVAC professional to come save me. No one would be able to come in this weather. Instead, I checked the systems myself. I looked for unusual things. I looked for things that were out of place. I finally figured out though that I needed to check the filter. Sure enough the filter was completely clogged. I changed it and soon later I heard the system kick right back on. I was lucky it was something I could fix.
