You guys in northern Europe and the UK seem to be getting hit hard this winter, while we are having a cold dry one here in the Southwest. :icon_whoknows:

Pretty snug... I got most of the wood we need in (one reason I haven't been on 12bar as much as I might like :roll: ). Can't let a little snow stop ya from going to work, let alone to gigs. :big_smile: This was my commute yesterday morning...

I did have to drive the truck...
Gerd... I am curious... Is that pretty little stove of yours a woodburner? I have installed a lot of those, and I wonder how high above your roofline the chimney goes? (like I can diagnose your chimney problem from half a world away :roll: )
This is ours... the sole source of heat in our house...

I have these sounds in my head of all these crashing trees around you at this time of year as you get the logs supply in! :big_smile:

That makes it a REALLY valuable piece of kit.

Ouch Strummer - sorry you've copped that lot. In Scotland teh Government Transport Minister had to resign with all this white stuff. I wonder who'll get the blame for your snowfall. :icon_whoknows:

Golfxzq is not on a visit to your house I see - not a Bud Light in sight on your table. :lol:

Oh .... my twinging back! :yikes:

Had great "fun" yesterday with a shovel in the driveway for an hour so I could go to work. Not sure it was worth it the way the back feels this morning. :sad:
