Winter has finally arrived. We had some snow flurries this morning and now it's 16 degrees outside. I've been sitting here listening to the wind and now I'm very glad that there are no large trees around here.
I'm also very glad that I have a fireplace that is gas fired instead of woodburning. It seems that no matter what I do, or how I stack the wood, I can't seem to start a fire, or keep it burning. That was a huge problem when I lived upstate and had a woodburning stove and the wind and cold surrounded the house.
All I need now to make this setting perfect would about 10" of snow like my cousin has.
