It's chilly in Florida and I figured hey, why not use up the rest of my firewood and light a fire! That'll save on heating costs tonight and will be romantic to cozy up to. I opened the flue, got some wood and went to work. It stacked up pretty well and I lit the paper and SMOKE! Smoke smoke smoke everywhere! I have a headache now, total mood killer, and the house reeks like crazy! I guess the wood hadn't dried out enough from our last rain. And, now the fire is gone and the windows are open so it's colder in here than when I started. GRRR. Oh and I have long hair and had just showered and washed it and it probably smells like a firepit, plus we don't have any tylenol and I have a major headache. Man! // end rant

We had the fireplace going last night. Our "dried out" hardwood not so dried out. But a few bottles of lighter fluid, an entire Sunday newspaper and a couple yours later, we had a respectable Florida fire.

We do have a lot of Floridians in this DDC. Represent!

Today is much warmer so I opened up some windows to clear out the smell. The cat kind of smells like a grill though
