Cold, cold, cold!
I bought extra many fire logs on my way home from work today. It was -19C (-2,2F) when I went o work this morning and it had dropped to -20,4C (-4,7F) after I had left. Nova had her blue coat on and I brought extra blankets in to the dog house just in case. It’s much warmer in there of course but I never know if something breaks down while I’m at work. She hates to wear a coat but she doesn’t have a choice 🙂
Even though the sun shone all day it didn’t make much difference and now it’s colder than it was yesterday at this time, I’ll stay up extra long tonight to keep the fire in the stove burning. It’s days like this most fires happens because people doesn’t know how to have a fire going. They usually starts the fire when it’s cold inside and they want the heat to start spreading quickly. So they put in lots of fire wood and keep the air flowing in to the fire in a high speed.
It’s when they do like that the chimney starts to crack and even if nothing happens that night it might the next. Small sparks travel through those cracks and starts a fire usually in the roof. Or they keep the fire going way to long so the chimney gets to hot and a fire starts because of that. One of our more popular actors dies last winter because of that they think. It had been very cold for quite some time and they just never stopped to put more fire wood in the stove.
It’s time to make some hot cocoa and a couple of sandwiches. Cold days and nights like this demands hot cocoa 🙂 I’m already dreading the morning walk tomorrow, it’ll be nasty cold I’m afraid 🙂
Have a great day!
