What about the fish?

Yet more evidence my priorities are out of whack…

This morning while getting ready for work I noticed a NY1 story about a family who had been without heat for a week during this cold snap. I feel for them in a way that only someone who has lived without decent heating during the worst part of winter really can. Being cold prevents you from even concentrating on living life and accomplishing the things you need to get done. You just huddle under as many layers as you can, grumble about the cold and wait for summer. Then suddenly, I completely forgot about the subjects of the story when I noticed an aquarium in the families apartment. What happened to the poor fish? Were they frozen to death? Is their aquarium heater working and keeping them alive?
