The $400.00 freaking "Ooops"

Well.....being so busy with twins and all we forgot to check our oil tank and see how much oil we had. This is even easier to forget when its been nice outside and we haven't been using our heat!

So, yesterday Gary called to tell me we ran out of oil! Yikes, we have had this house for 5 years and this is the first time we ran out so we had no idea what to expect. All I know is we had no hot water, but luckily we have a pellet stove for heat!

So I called and ordered oil......and Gary headed to the gas station to grab some diesel hoping it would do the trick and the furnace would kick back on.

Well that didn't happen. So we had to call the oil people and have them send repair man out this morning. A hour and fifteen minutes and $400.00 later our furnace is working again. See if we EVER let our furnace run out of oil again! You better bet your life I am going to be down there daily checking to make sure we don't run out!

Lesson learned......the hard way. Eeeek.

We had that happen to us twice this winter. Totally sucked !!! The second time the meter reader was off so we didn't know it dropped !!
