I think this may shock most people who read this!
Here in North Dakota, we DO NOT have a fireplace.
Of all the places we have lived, this might be the one place that we could seriously use one!
Our weather here lately has been just FRIGHTFUL! This morning I checked the weather and it was -17 degrees with a windchill of -39 degrees.
What does that feel like some have asked?
Its like walking outside and having all of the air in your lungs evaporate and then your nose hairs FREEZE.
Tonight's forecast is -20 degrees with windchill as low as -40. I'll let you know how that is! Last night our heat was running all night long!
