William's Blog...with a smile!


I didn't know but should have.

I got a call the other day from one of the kids.

They had been up to the cabin and said it was very cold.

We keep the heat low because we use it at times during the winter.

This cabin is new for us.

Well, everything was frozen.

The toilets and all the water lines.

The furnace was not kicking in.

My wife and I made a quick trip up there.

It took a few minutes for me to see the thermostat was the issue.

Oh, it worked.  It was the batteries that went dead.

I didn't realize it had batteries.

I should have known.  I should have checked to see it it needed them.


A warning for others...Check your thermostats and see if it uses batteries.

Sellers, if your home's thermostats uses batteries then please be kind and tell the new owners.

It is just the right thing to do.


Snow on the ground...check your thermostats.
