Power outage due to furnace malfunction

Last night I was watching television with my husband when suddenly the power went out.

  • It was just before we got to find out who murdered the woman in the show too.

That was so annoying. Of course, power lines go down from time to time so we just busted out our lanterns and planned to get comfortable with our e-readers. It was then that we noticed that the lights were on in all of the other houses in our area. My husband went to the basement and checked our breaker box. It had been tripped. He turned it back on. Then, 10 minutes later, our furnace kicked on again and the power went back off. This repeated twice more before we realized that it was the furnace causing it. Finally, we turned off the furnace, dug some portable heaters out of the basement, and called up the furnace company. They couldn’t come out until the next morning. I thought it would be a very cold night but those portable heaters actually work pretty good. We didn’t have any more power outages overnight either. In the morning, the furnace company tripped the breaker twice more while trying to figure out what the problem was. It turned out to be some sort of an electrical problem deep within our furnace system. Thankfully it was fixable. The furnace has been working great all day and we have not had any more power outages. The best part is that the show we were watching last night is having a rerun tonight. That means that we finally get to see who did it.
