Scheduling flights

The lease on my last apartment ran out in the middle of February, and I moved during the middle of a horrible blizzard.  The outside temperature was down to fifteen below zero with severe wind chill. It was also blowing snow and there was a travel advisory in effect.  It was not much fun driving a moving van over icy roads with zero visibility. Plus, the heater in the moving van was not working effectively and I had trouble keeping the windshield defrosted.  I had the heat shut off in the new apartment, so it was freezing cold. I made a dozens of trips from the apartment to the moving van, carrying all of my belongings down numerous flights of stairs.  Bundled up in a wool coat, boots, hat and gloves because of the lack of heating plus severe temperatures, I switched between shivering and being covered in sweat. Once I arrived at the new apartment, I started the horrible process all over again, carrying all of my stuff up four flights of stairs to an apartment with no heat.  Since I was leaving the door to the apartment wide open, I didn’t want to run the heater. My heated air would literally escape into the hallway. With the cost of operating the heater, I wasn’t willing to waste energy. It took myself and others numerous hours to get everything located. I then needed to return the moving van; Before I left, I cranked up the thermostat and heard the furnace kick in.  By the time I got back, I expected the new apartment to be warm. Instead, it was super freezing because the heater was blasting freezing air. Although I fiddled with the controls, I couldn’t get the heat to run. I finally had to call the building employer for assistance.
