All is “well”…

We got up this morning to no hot water. It seems that in my messing around with the furnace I also did something unhelpful to the water heater and turned off the pilot light.

Tom got that lit again, so we do have hot water.

The furnace is making buzzing noises, but won't turn on.
- the thermostat does what the inside of the thermostat is supposed to do
- the fan on the furnace works (blows cold air)
- the motor buzzes, but it won't kick on.
- we have an electronic ignition, not a pilot light

I'm guessing that it might be the ignition (the furnace has a sticker on it with all the work its had done and it's had to have one ignition replaced at 3 years old and that was 3 years ago.

On the bright side, the house is holding heat very nicely. Two space heaters is keeping it "not quiet comfortable" - but comfortable with an extra layer. This will get us through until the beginning of the week, so I don't have to pay the surcharge.
