so for the past month and 1/2 my furnace has been running for 2 days and then crapping out for the next couple weeks. then it runs for 2 days and craps out.
yea so im my own landlord, and im a ski bum who is broke.
so we were living with firewood as heat, which worked really well until we burned our whole entire stack (a full shed and a massive pile outside).
so we ran out of firewood and all of my pipes froze. then i got the furnace kicked on and it thawed out the pipes. and they fucking explosed all over.
our water turn off valve is 3 feet under the ground with a metal cap on top of the pole in the ground. there was about 2 feet of solid ice and a shit load of snow that has been packed by the snow plow man.
while my house is flooding i am trying to unbairy(damn how do you spell that word?) this metal cap that is surely frozen solid to the pole.
so 2 1/2 hours later i get to the shut off vavle and get it turned off.
i call up the heating and plumbing guys to come to my house and fix all this shit up. and they tell me they can't come until tuesday, it was thursday. so i wait until tuesday, breckenridge is getting hammered with snow, my house is an ice box. and finally 6 days after they said they would be here, they have arrived. the water shut off vavle is covered in ice again. they want to charge me $85 to get it opened up. i tell them to fuck off and in 30 min the mother fucker is off. now i have heat and water and am not living out of the fucking rec. center behind my house.
it's amazing how heat and running water can change your whole perspective on your house. and now, finally my place is nice.
