It's so cold it feels like mother nature just slapped you across the face when stepping outside. Walking on the back deck causes loud cracks and pops. It felt good to come inside and start a fire. It's getting down to 4 degrees tonight in Louisville. I'd gripe but it doesn't do any
I have a sort of love/hate relationship with our Franklin Stove. You have to deal with finding the wood, pack-mule it inside, take out the ashes, enlarge your carbon footprint...etc. This little
video shows the advantage. I don't know too many people who don't enjoy watching a fire in the hearth.
