pilot and winds

rcrit
rcrit Member Posts: 71
Over the last couple of weeks in Baltimore we've had two days of very high winds (gusts up to 55mph) and moderate temperatures (50's and 60's). On both of these days the pilot on my furnace went out. We didn't notice right away since it was so mild. Fortunately the gas valve safeties worked and I didn't end up with a basement full of gas.



Is there something I can/should do about this?



I do have a working electronic flue (or at least it makes a hell of a racket every time the boiler fires).
I'm just a homeowner that has a steam system, take my advice with a few grains of salt.
