Once again I woke to a cold house with the furnace not working. Thankfully, Matt from Vashon Heating and Cooling was able to come right over, and an hour and half later, I had a new thermostat and heat! The thermostat was even under warranty, having been installed only last fall, so there were no charges which was nice. And by the time my first student arrived the house was again properly heated. I only had three students today since the other three had cancelled for a variety of reasons, and I was glad for the easier day. The work continues on the crawl space. Today all holes or cracks were filled with concrete so that there is no way for rats to get in. Tomorrow, I think, everything gets sanitized and deodorized, which will get rid of the slight residue odor.
