Settling back in to more mundane house news, had to drag the space heater down to the ground floor for the seemingly yearly thawing of the downstairs toilet (which is now working just fine - we'll keep some warm air on it while it remains around -10)

I believe I have now earned a more traditional 11:30PM ice cream as it's now too hot to sleep upstairs... but I will resist the temptation to crack open the window ;-)

So! The preliminary diagnosis was that the water heater part of the system was taking priority over the radiator part of the system, which wasn't so great since I wasn't actually using THAT hot water. Also, this feels like kinda a hidden "feature" of linking the hot water heater to the boiler I wasn't aware of a year be fair, it didn't bite me until now, but I feel like we had some -10 days back in January?

The tech (hats off to the company for sending somebody out IMMEDIATELY) was one of the crew who INSTALLED this thing last December - he made a call to find out what needs to be tweaked. ("Boiler tech support" sounds hilarious.) In the meantime, he'd forced the boiler to get boiling while ignoring the water heater and we've finally seen an uptick in the thermostat's reported temperature - up to 51 from 50, wheeeeeeee

Whatever is happening was surely a result (a snowball?) of it being pretty much below zero all day (and much of the previous two days) - the radiators just weren't keeping up and maintaining the house temperature the way they were supposed to with the way the heaters were running.

It sounds like I may be a test case for other folks who will call in with the same problem. They adjusted some settings, then wrote it up as a warranty call, no charge. I guess I can now name them - it was Snelling Heating, who came off my boss' recommendation last year.

It will take a while to get equalized but we're on the road back to the 60s! I'll keep you posted. I know you love the episodic stuff!

Five days since Nora told me this existed, and Cub helpfully put it on sale, so let's try it. When I think "Old Bay," I think "it's for crab!" so it seemed that the perfect delivery medium would be to slather it on some Morey's imitation crab flakes. With the primary ingredients of cayenne peppers and vinegar, this seems to be on the Tabasco side of the sauces but it is a lot thicker than Tabasco. It's definitely spicy - perhaps too spicy for some Minnesotans! - but not overpoweringly so although my tongue is still pleasantly tingling a while later, although that might be more the vinegar than the other ingredients. It would be PERFECT on oysters, a food I have never eaten at home and have no intentions to (although there are a few spots out there where it'd be a mandatory appetizer). What can I say? It delivers, it probably tastes like you'd expect, and if you think you'd like it you probably would. This jar will probably last me long enough to start to dry u!
p, get super concentrated and then get REALLY interesting. I guess I should put it on some of those Herr's chips once things get REALLY blizzardy and I've been in the house for 72 hours straight - STAY TUNED TO THIS SOCIAL NETWORK
