Out of the Blue

My reprieve from yard work yesterday turned sour when the heating guy showed up to find out why the heat on the second floor isn't working. Flash forward to midnight, where I am paying off the plumber for a few hours work installing new relief tanks, a few other new fixtures, and a new pressure reduction valve, as our old one had failed, leaving our home plumbing to deal with water pressure intended to distribute water over several square miles. And at the end of it all, only one radiator out of three on that floor actually gets hot, and the other two just warm up a bit, so we never even completely solved the original problem. Joy.
