Being a quarter Irish, I would have really liked to have cashed in on the "luck" of my ancestors but needless to say the month of March has been less than lucky. This is what I get for forgetting to wear green on the 17th.
The beginning of the month our fairly new furnace decided it was a good time to crap out amidst the below zero temperatures we were experiencing. The downside to being "fairly new" is that parts aren't readily available and the furnace itself is of course just outside its warranty. Fortunately, the repairman was able to jimmy-rig it while we waited a couple weeks for the part to be special ordered from Italy. I'm glad to say we are finally back up and running since temperatures are still in the thirties.
