We've been turning our heat on at night for the cats and the crabbies so they don't freeze... and we thought it was working fine! Leasing office puts notices on everyone's doors saying that if we haven't turned on our heat yet, we should once to make sure it works so they can start doing maintainence tickets without crazyness. We think "no problem there!" And then we realize it's cold in the apartment and ta-da... No heat :) So just as I'm sitting here freezing tonight... I have a revelation to solve my problem of having no picture yet again, and no heat! Welcome back good old electric blanket! It has always worked such wonders foor poor cold me!
