Heater Maxed Out

A few weeks ago, we had the biggest snow storm that our city had ever seen.

  • It knocked down electrical poles and trees.

Many homes were without heat or electricity. It was a nightmare of a storm. Luckily, my house did not lose power or electricity. My parents blasted the heater at its highest setting to keep us warm. My entire extended family slept at our house to stay safe and warm. It turned out to be a fun week because we were all spending unexpected time with family. When the storm finally ended, it was unbearably warm outside. The temperatures shot up unexpectedly and melted all of the snow. My parents tried to turn the heater down, but the heating system was stuck. We couldn’t get the thermostat to adjust to the next outdoor conditions. It became a sauna in our house! We couldn’t find an available repairman for a few days because they were in high demand due to the storm. It was the most uncomfortable few days! Once the repairman arrived, we were so relieved. We had spent those few days walking around the house in summer tanks and shorts. We had fans set up throughout the house as well. He must have felt shocked to see such a sight in the middle of winter! Luckily, it was a simple repair that only required one small piece to be replaced. He was able to complete the repair in under an hour. It was also a very cheap repair. After the repair was complete, I felt like I could breathe again!
