Now the story can be told...

My Mom reads this blog, so I didn't want to mention this 'til it was all fixed.

But the other thing I woke up to this morning, down here in my parent's old house, is that the oil burner had stopped doing its thing.

I noticed that it was a bit chilly when I got up, and adjusting the thermostat didn't fire up the furnace.

A quick look downstairs revealed a sinister looking red light on the burner control box.

I called the service people, and (bless their hearts) they arrived at my door in about 2 hrs.

Turns out, the "nozzle" was clogged. He replaced it, and all was well (and warming up) again.

Damage: $72
