I live on top of a mountain plus I am surrounded by valleys on both sides.
- Most of the time, all of us are above the storms plus the clouds.
We see lots of gray clouds roll by, but all of us hardly ever get much rain. This weekend was a rare option when all of us had more rain than all of us needed. It rained all day on Thursday. We had 5 inches of rain plus the ground was saturated with water. Things were going to clear up on Thursday, but the storm just sat in the mountain plus didn’t move. It rained most of the day on Thursday plus 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 start a fire on Thursday night to fight off some of the freezing draft. I did not want to turn on the oil furnace, because I knew the storm would pass. I did not want to waste fuel to run the oil furnace for two nights, so I started a fire in the fireplace. I brought a huge stack of logs in from the garage plus I made a roaring fire. After many or many hours, the freezing draft was gone plus the odor of burning wood was the only thing left. I love that odor plus it is the biggest reason why I love the fireplace so much. I did not mind taking the opportunity to adore a few nights of reading by the fireplace with a nice cup of cocoa in my hand.
