March 27 – David made me laugh with this new twist on getting the fire started.  We’ve had a number of single digit overnights and inside is chilly.  We’ve suffered through wet firewood all winter and now that it got rained on (before the big snow), it’s even harder to get going.  He got tired of huffing on it and came up with this.   He just smiled when I told him to hold still for a picture.  He gets me.

BTW, this totally works.  Look at those flames!
