IIRC, Pilot Light and it might be out. When he gets up from his nap, I will ask him to accompany me down into the basement, but I’m not going down there by myself. I hate spiders. Basement accessis from the back porch. Mercifully, it’s a lit, but unfinished basement.

It was beautiful here today, but tonight we have a 60% chance of snow and a low of 27 degrees expected.

Terrible weather day! Rain hasn’t let up. Hearing about tornado warnings now, but over by Mobile, Alabama and I think one over in your state. Too dang cold for such thangs.

I’m sick of the cold and sick of the rain. I will be happy when our hot summer arrives. Heck, nowhere beats the South for most of March, April, May and June. The nicest, warmest, most wonderful sun and virtually no humidity, and I say that as a native San Diegan.

I doubt we’re going to get much snow tonight, because there isn’t much near us on radar.

I hate spiders.

You don't have to convince me about spiders, LOL.
Be careful or shake loose with a couple of bucks and call a repair guy. We're supposed to drop to 50 tonight and that puts y'all around 40.
Too cold without heat.

I’m tired of northern winters. But I don’t think that I’d like hurricane season any better. I grew up in tornado country.

I agree. That is way too cold of a night without heat. Several years ago, I called our local utility company because I couldn’t fix the furnace that time, he showed up, spent several ours at our house at $75 an hour but only charged for 1/2 half hour and a beer! :)

He sleeps upstairs without any heat all winter, so this is of no inconvenience to him. I can (and do) sleep downstairs many nights, and, I have this portable heater right next to me now. I’m going to the basement soon to “have a look” right after I cook the dinner.

That's what worries me. Most of the time when the pilot light goes out on a Central, it's the gas valve or the sensor that detects the pilot is burning.
Both easy fixes if you have the part.
Repair guys always carry those parts.
Usually just the pilot sensor, $20 part.

We had a gas furnace at the last place that we lived. On windy days it would blow the pilot out. The furnace was in the attached garage.
