Will someone please help me!

What most folks don’t know since the huge explosions that rocked my neighborhood over a month ago is that most of us are still without heating. Back in October, gas lines malfunctioned due to poor maintenance by the company who owns them. They failed to pressurize the lines correctly during maintenance in September. When everyone turned their heat on as the weather began to chill in October, disaster struck. Over 80 homes were destroyed in gas line explosions. We’re lucky to still have our home. However, we’re living without heat now as the gas lines are slowly but surely repaired. Their negligence means that all of those exploded pipes have to be relaid. Folks in our area that have money set aside are just making the switch to oil heating, so they already have their homes nice and warm again. People like me though, middle class families who go from paycheck to paycheck, we’re stuck waiting for the gas company to repair the lines and get the heat back on. For now, the gas company has been decent enough to give out space heaters to all the homes who need them. It’s the least they can do after causing so much destruction. However, the space heaters aren’t enough when the temperatures are already plummeting down to the single digits. We’re trying to stay warm with electric blankets, but even then our kids and the pets get terribly cold at night. I’m hoping we’ll have the gas heater back soon, but the news says it could be till after Christmas.
