    How long was the power off?

    What type of heating? Hot water? Steam?

    Do you have Radiators? Or radiant Heat?

    Was 69 comfortable before, and always your t stat setting?

    And an obvious question...

    is the boiler running?  Does it run if you turn up the thermostat?

    If not, what was the power problem?  Is there a manual reset required on the boiler?  Did it lock out for some reason (if oil, did the burner lose prime, for instance?).  Was there a surge along with the power outage?  If there was, did it fry something?
