We had a brutal winter.   It was bad, real bad.  Some of us foolishly hoped for a warm spring and a longer summer.   Now as we've been through most of June, we are still waiting for summer to begin.

    It's 90 degress in Hibbing, and your furnance just kicked on.

    A couple of weeks ago, I saw on Facebook that it was 90 degrees in hibbing.  It was 52 degrees in Superior, and my furnance kicked on.  It was like a slap in the face.

    My utilities bill came on Monday and my bill for gas heat was over $100.  Seriously.

    A heating and cooling plumber is working across the street, and you have to ask what for?

    Our neighbor must have had a problem and called a heating and cooling specialist.   We didn't know if he was getting his furnace fixed in June, or getting his A/C ready for summer.  (It was 60 degrees that day.)
