I was reading over my previous blog posts over this week, from the welcoming blog to the fire to the one I did last night. Eating a bowl of fried ice cream drizzled with Mexican hot fudge syrup. We make our own hot fudge, taken from an old Mexican hot chocolate recipe I “borrowed” from my Hermana Adrianna.
That chocolate syrup is award winning, for real; I have entered and dominated so many Deseret and ice cream completions all over the world. There are lots of cinnamon, vanilla, and chilies. Just one word comes to mind: delicious!
Enough about my sweet treat.
What I forget to mention about the fire is the great damage we suffer to our heating and cooling system. I have never seen anything like that.
The heat from the fire caused the old boiler that had been in that building for almost seventy-five years, burst. Something the high heat caused the water in the boiler to boil, expand, then it expanded so much that it had no way to go. However, out. In addition, out it went.
Which was really a blessing in disguise. I really needed to update the heating and cooling system. This way I was able to do so without coming out of my own pocket.
Well maybe just a little bit because I still had to pay for the deductible.
That that is a drop in the bucket when you think about how much something like that would cost otherwise. Now I have a state of the art HVAC system.
