It's still snowing and my furnace started smoking and went off, now my house smells like gas. I don't have a car I can drive because hub took it to work, he also has my bank card and he put our ladder in the U-Store. So I have no ladder to check the roof, can't get out with the car and if I did get out somehow I don't have a card to charge a hotel room!! I called hub and I don't even want to repeat the crap he shoveled at me!! I am crying and have to figure out how to keep the girls warm and the pipes from freezing and bursting!!

Can you call the gas com[pany and tell them they need to check...I think the fire department would also respond if you are smelling gas.

We use kerosene and I can't get to the tank. I will be back later. I need to try and call someone.

i know it doesn't help now, but keeping one or two of those cheap oil filled electric radiators in a back closet comes in handy as an emergency backup.

if it really gets bad, boil water on the stovetop to help raise temp and humidity, and put as many fat candles in as many coffee tins as you can find, lght them and put them in safe places. you'd be surprised at how much heat you'll get in small rooms with them.

How soon will your husband be home? You should be all right for at least a day or two. How cold is it outside?

We heat with electricity and it was chilly, but okay during the ice storm in the late '90s. We didn't have any power for eight days. We wore lots of clothes in the house and the cats slept in the bed with us.
