So last night, the boiler/radiator system in my house gave it up. It's been grumbling for awhile and I had thought, with some judicious bleeding of the pipes, that the monster could be appeased.
Well, I was incorrect and the pump which pushes the hot water through the miles of pipe in the house went KAAPUTTT!! So it's brrrrrrr in here, even after getting a fire going.
Baby, It's Cold Inside!!!
