Everything turned out to be okay after the HVAC expert came to help

It only took him like 5 minutes to do the job and then he even stayed around for a bit to roast some marshmallows and eat some s’mores before leaving.

I felt so terrible when I realized that I took my family to a cabin where the HVAC system wasn’t working. I didn’t know what was wrong with the oil furnace, but I did call the cabin rental company to complain. They said they would see what they could do for us and I was panicking. In the meantime, we got a fire going in the fireplace. Soon, I was called back from the rental company with good news. They had an HVAC expert in the area who was able to come to our cabin within the hour. This was good news indeed and we all just relaxed in front of that fireplace to keep warm. The youngsters even roasted marshmallows and made s’mores. Those were pretty good, but I could only eat one. The HVAC expert who arrived definitely knew what he was doing because he found the issue in no time. He said that it was the old pilot light that needed a good cleaning so that it could stay lit. It only took him like 5 minutes to do the job and then he even stayed around for a bit to roast some marshmallows and eat some s’mores before leaving. We offered to let him stay for dinner, but he said he had a prior engagement. The rest of our vacation in the cabin was amazing. It even snowed on the third day, and the kids had fun building a snow fort and having a huge snowball fight. My wife and I even got in on the action for a little bit, but then we all had some hot cocoa in front of the fireplace to warm up again.
