The air handler in the West Wing blew a fuse the first day, so we shut it down, drained the water lines, and moved to our bedroom upstairs. The West Wing is what we call the one-story downstairs master bedroom+ addition that we built ten years ago. I prefer sleeping upstairs, so the move wasn't a hardship for me. Fortunately, we have a separate heatpump for the older part of the house. Shutting down the addition is actually saving us money; that's roughly 700 square feet we're not heating now.
Kathy's brother delivered replacement fuses and some groceries. His four-powered-wheels SUV failed to keep him from getting stuck while leaving. He's waiting now on another of Kathy's brothers to bring a tractor which will pull him out.
The stuck is now unstuck. The roads are treacherous; folks around here aren't equipped or experienced for cold weather, ice, and snow. Some photos. More at my flickr photostream.
