Let it Snow

On Sunday, we finally got our first snow of the season. I'm not talking first MEASURABLE snow...it was the first snow at all! No flurries, no flakes, no sleet, nothing up until now. Since it was finally snowing, Chris went and got some firewood and we lit our first fire of the season. Our house now smells like a campfire but it was really nice. Chris's parents gave us a new fireplace insert that fits better than the old one. We have a small fireplace and the old holder was a tad too big. This one is self-feeding, so as the wood burns, it falls down toward the bottom and you add more to the top. I think it worked great!

I can't believe you guys haven't gotten snow yet...and us out in the desert got got several inches. Fire looks so toasty - regardless of the stinky smell!

You had a great fire going. It looks like the new grate worked wonderfully. I love a fireplace, but not the cleanup. You forgot to mention the 70+ degree temperatures we had in December....it was so strange!
