Unfortunately, the interesting story of the moment doesn’t lend itself to nice visuals.  Sometime last night, my furnace decided it was getting dangerously hot and shut itself off. When it cools, a switch is supposed to close and turn the furnace back on, but said switch picked the wee hours of the morning to travel to the great parts bin in the sky.

So, I’m writing my introduction in my slowly cooling living room and wishing my computer power supply were less efficient and spitting out more heat.  I’ll spare everyone photos of my non-functional HVAC and give silent thanks that I don’t live in northern climes.
