diamonds from heaven

So this has little to do with my house except that the ice storm knocked out my power for 18 hours. The masonry heater kept me toasty and a few candles kept me from bumping into things. Pictures don't do it justice, it was spectacular.

happy heating

My wood-fired masonry heater has been working like a dream. I built a fire last night before bed and the house stayed toasty all night. Outside dropped to the single digits with below zero wind chills. Inside, the temp went from 68 degrees last night down to 64 this morning. All from one armload of wood.
