My partner was legitimately distraught about having enough wood for the fireplace this year. When it gets legitimately frigid outside, we often use the fireplace to help supplement with the heating system. This saves us a lot of currency on purchasing fuel for the heating system. We live on a mountain, as well as there is never a lack of downed wood for the fireplace. The older trees are regularly coming down in windstorms, in an effort to make room for the younger as well as more hardy trees. It isn’t savor we are splitting trees down, it is just the outdated wood. This year, we didn’t get out to gather wood, as well as she was distraught that we would not have enough for the winter. We are already a month into Wintertide as well as we haven’t used the fireplace. Once in a while, Mother Nature throws us a bone. It can be a serious winter, or it can be a mild winter. This year, it is of the mild type. We have only had a few afternoons when we thought it was legitimately frigid enough to need the extra heating. Our temperatures have stayed in the forties, which isn’t what we legitimately like, because it is rough for the ski resorts. Fortunately, when we look at the heating situation, it is excellent. We haven’t need to refill our oil tank yet, which is great, but I do miss the snow. I’m just hoping that we don’t wake up in the next couple of weeks, as well as find a foot of snow that lasts well into the Spring. We’ll be scrambling to get more wood in to keep the fireplace running for the remainder of the Wintertide season.
