Metro Furnace Repairmen Working Double Duty
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Over a week of fighting subzero temperatures is more than many furnaces have been able to handle in central Iowa. Furnace repairmen are now working nearly around the clock to get furnaces firing again. Des Moines resident Michael Harden's thermometer reads 63 degrees. “Well I woke up in the middle of the night on New Year’s Day at 3:30 in the morning and it was cold. The furnace decided to stop working for a while," Harden said.
