So sorry to hear about your heat...I hate cold weather and I hate being cold. And I definitely know what you mean about being on a tight budget. We've been trying to get a lot of debt paid off and it seems that whenever you think things are going good, something always comes up. Heck, I'm usually scared it we have extra money(which is almost never) because I start thinking somethings gonna happen. Anyway, I hope you are able to get it fixed ASAP and maybe you can find some rebates or something. Good Luck!!
