Well, &%$#@!

Got home last night to a cold house.  The furnace is kaput.  Thank God we kept our space heaters after our last house had furnace issues.  We already notified the landlord, but it's almost New Year's.  We'll see how quickly an HVAC person can come on by.

As an aside, if you have any kids, get them interested in HVAC.  Calls like this will pay the guy's mortgage.

If there was a power outage, it may not have reset. There should be a reset button on the blower relay,or the motor itself, usually a red button. Give that a push for a few seconds. See if she'll fire off.

No power outage. Turns out it was the igniter. There was an old igniter in there, and it failed sometime while we were gone. HVAC guy came in, checked everything out, replaced the igniter, and we're in business. Much cheaper than I feared it would be.

That'll do it. Electrical arc erosion is an insidious thing.
