heat update

The furnace died, sort of. Apparently we developed a hole in our heat exchanger (probably due to age) which caused a backdraft of air and a loss of pressure which caused the furnace to go out in the first place. It then caused the smell when we got the furnace restarted.

The furnace guys came, patched the hole, put in a new controller and told us we need a new furnace. The patch is probably good for a few weeks so it definitely needs to be replaced sooner rather than later. Luckily it's close to the end of the heating season and we have a wood burning stove so it's not as bad as it might be.
