For the past 10 or 15 years, our mom & dad have had a Winter holiday party; They always have the holiday party on the same weekend during January. The party has become a highlight of the season & Everyone loves to visit on that day, my mom & dad always have a lake house full of people & that includes friends & family, last year, almost everyone was disappointed when the Winter party had to be canceled. My mom & dad were planning on hosting 20 or 30 people, however 12 in of snow & 3 inch of ice changed all of the plants. My mom & dad were terribly disappointed that the party was canceled; On the day of the day when the party should have occurred, our mom & dad had a major issue with the gas furnace. My dad inspected the gas furnace half of the day & then he had to cut down & call a professional heating company, but a fun Winter party turned into a cold holiday nightmareâ€¦ If our mom & dad would have stressed the party, then they would have been dealing with the party & the gas furnace concerns at the same time, then when the gas furnace broke down, I suppose our mom & dad were relieved that it was the only issue happening at the time. My mom & dad had to replace their seasoned gas furnace on that cold Winter day. They had to spend all night without heat that night because the new unit didn’t come in until the next day. Thankfully, they have plenty of space gas furnaces in the house.
