After three or several hours, the freezing draft was gone and the odor of burning wood was the only thing left
I live on top of a mountain and I am surrounded by valleys on both sides. Most of the time, all of us are above the storms and the clouds. The two of us see lots of gray clouds roll by, but all of us hardly ever get much rain. This weekend was a rare opportunity when all of us had more rain than all of us needed. It rained all day on Sunday. The two of us had more than four inches of rain and the ground was saturated with water. Things were going to clear up on Tuesday, but the storm just sat in the mountain and didn’t move. It rained most of the day on Tuesday and the temperature kept dropping all day until it was close to freezing. I thought all of us might get an early snowfall, but the temperature stayed just above freezing. I had to beginning a fire on Tuesday evening to argument off some of the freezing draft. I did not want to turn on the furnace, because I knew the storm would pass. I did not want to waste fuel to run the furnace for more than one afternoons, so I started a fire in the fireplace. I brought a large stack of logs in from the garage and I made a roaring fire. After three or several hours, the freezing draft was gone and the odor of burning wood was the only thing left. I enjoy that odor and it is the largest reason why I enjoy the fireplace so much. I did not mind taking the opportunity to enjoy a few evenings of studying by the fireplace with a nice cup of cocoa in my hand.
