Brings to mind my "splitting" days :) I'd wait for a sunny, bright day in winter to walk the path between snow banks and spend a half hour or so splitting firewood. Great exercise when I was younger, although not sure this "old" back could handle it these days - guess it's a good thing I moved south! LOL

An old cherry tree had to come down years ago. You're right about it! May not be the hottest burning hardwood, but the smell is just wonderful.

Thanks for writing about this "hot" topic :)

Ahhh, how I could have used this info back in Denver! Out here on Kwaj, we certainly don't have fireplaces, but I still enjoyed reading your info-packed article. Stay safe and warm, and cuddle in the warmth of the fire - I will envision you there when reading your posts and articles for the next little while.

Thanks!
Shari

Firewood is supposed to warm you twice, right? Once while you cut it and once when you burn it?

Anyway, I'd like to reiterate all the safety issues Susanne mentioned above. I know someone who cut off the very tip of his left forefinger 10 or 15 years ago because he wasn't wearing gloves. At the time he was unimpressed by his new, shorter finger. Now he's had a stroke, is paralyzed on the right side, and needs every millimeter of his left side he can come up with.

So, be careful, folks, and stay warm! xx, Carrie

A warm fire place and some crackling logs - sounds really good even down here in Houston! It's going to be COLD here in the coming week - yes I know the term "cold" is relative!. Great article, and I wish you some great marshmallow roasting!
