We finally have cold weather. That means that our house is COLD. We really need that insulation and better furnace. I find it astonishing that everyone before us didn't try to solve this very basic problem. Yet, there you go.

I lit a fire in the fireplace to test it out. It sure did get hot, and all the heat went up the chimney. The fireplace does have an insert with an electric blower, but that is broken. It does not blow. However, I did get to start a fire.
