Let it Snow, again and again.

“Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow”,
These are famous words, from a famous song about winter…being a wonderland?

No, that’s the wrong the song. It’s not “Winter Wonderland”, it’s “Let It Snow!, Let It Snow!, Let It Snow!”. Both are old songs with old sentimental lyrics, lots of playing in the snow and sitting around the fire feeling the warmth.

If you look at the words to the Let It Snow song, and pick specific phrases from the lyrics, then it perfectly describes what has gone on in this area, this winter.

For example: Oh, the weather outside is frightful,


                        It doesn’t show signs of stopping,

                        or how about

                        How I’ll hate going out in the storm.

The words take on a different meaning when taken out of context, don’t they?

I once had a house with a fireplace. It was in a rarely used living room, no television, just the bookcases filled with all my books, a comfortable couch and my grandmother’s oriental lamp.

I loved that room. It was my favourite place to curl up with a good book. I never burned real wood, just those 3 hour fake logs, but since I was going for mood more than heat, that was okay. The flames still danced, the warmth and the ambience a solace.

I’m fortunate; I don’t have to brave the cold and snow every morning for work and I don’t have to shovel out the drive over and over again. When I look out my window I can still see the beauty of fresh fallen snow, and appreciate the warmth and comfort of my home.

I was going to offer you a glimpse of one of those Yule Log Fireplaces.

Maybe this fire will inspire you more.

I'm even lazier than you when it comes to fires. Even the 3 hour logs are too much work for me. For instant ambience I tune the TV to channel 204 where there's a roaring fire in a fireplace filling the screen, complete with the crackling. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And in High Definition!
