Default Yesterday was a bad day.

The furnace in my house stopped working. I found out that my chimney needs cleaning - so I can't use the fireplace. And my WRX developed the cold-weather fuel leak.

I'm sitting in my living room in a hat, scarf and coat. I can barely feel my fingers I know you all feel sorry for me :-P

Anyway, for those of you who have had the fuel leak fixed. Which dealership did you take it to and how much did they hit you up for? I know it's something I can fix myself with $5 in hose and clamps from AutoZone. But it's a bit cold out to be pulling my intake manifold off today. Also, if the NTSB has Subaru issue a recall, I'll be reimbursed.

I'm just wondering if I need to take it down to SoD or if I can get away with having it done at Huffines....which is much closer.

I'm way beyond my 36k warranty, btw.

have you tried one of those CSLs (chimeny sweeping log)? might help you keep things warm...

if not, CHRITMAS AT CALEBZ for you!

Thanks, Calebz. My father in-law came over and took me out for a bit so I was able to get my blood back up to operating temperature. I'm back at the house now, though, because I need to wrap my wife's Christmas/birthday presents before she gets home from work. The furnace repair guy and chimney sweep are supposed to both be here "between 2 and 5". Nice....

I did try a CSL yesterday. It seemed to be working okay, but towards the end of it's burnination the house started to smell of smoke pretty bad. I had to shut the fireplace. The chimney isn't completely blocked...but just enough that I can't use it.

I can literally see my breath in my house. FUN! I've got a little space heater and I've blockaded myself in the smallest bedroom. Thank God for my wireless network. There's nothing else in this room to keep me entertained

On a positive note...I avoided a major ice-related accident yesterday. I would like to thank God, my mad ice driving skillz from having grown up in the great northeast, and the beauty of all-wheel drive.

Some dude, apparantly surnamed "Martinez" in a flare-side pickup decided it would be fun to nail the gas as he went across a hu3g overpass. He was in front of me and to my right. When he inevitably lost traction to his rear wheels, his car rotated in my direction and crossed directly in front of me. I reacted PERFECTLY and was able to avoid him by mere centimeters. I was really impressed with myself - my Jersey-Boy skills aren't as rusty as I thought. I really thought I was going to hit him, but I ended up just barely making it around his tailgate and back, safely, into my lane.

My wife was equally impressed.

At any rate...with a cold house, a time-bomb of a car, no place for a fire, numb fingers and presents to wrap - I at least have that one shining moment to hold on to and get me through the next few days.

We'll be over at 5:30 for dinner, Calebz.
