The Monster In The Closet

On one of the coldest nights of the year, it decided to scare us. With four feet of smoke hanging from the ceiling in the den and the smoke alarm blaring, we shut off the heater, dialed 911, hurriedly dressed in warm clothes and opened all the doors. After welcoming a half dozen firemen into the house to check things out, we determined that nothing was (still) on fire but there were some serious malfunctions and we shouldn't run it until having the serviceman out...again. So we hit Target and WalMart to stock up on space heaters. Brrr!
