Ali tried to turn on the heat yesterday when she got home from school. I say 'tried' because shortly after turning it on, it began filling the house with a smelly, smokey haze which lingered until I got home at 4:30. I guess I'll have to call our fuel oil company--we know it's only a matter of time before the furnace has to be replaced. It hasn't run efficiently in a long time, often not turning on at all, or staying lit once it's on. Our hesitance is that, at the same time, we'll have to get a new above-ground oil tank. Our current one is buried underground and those are just not allowed anymore. Where oh where to put this monstrosity in our backyard?
I long for the days of summer!
