Thank you Darlene, there is something magical about a log fire, I grew up with one but now just radiators', certainly not the same. Tom.

Thanks Dear Heart, I bet it's lovely to see from indoors with a warm cosy fire, no snow in UK only rain so far. Happy you liked it. Tom.

Thanks Sunshine, you're further north so yours will no doubt be worse than ours. A few flakes here and the country grinds to a halt lol. Tom.

A beautiful, heart warming picture you have painted for us Tom, almost a fairy tale image - really love it! I'm happy to think that even the poor can make a log fire, so long as they have shelter of course from the snow! Best wishes, Jennifer

Thank you Anisha, you are in the best place, there is nothing worse than the cold. Tom.

Nothing quite as inviting as enjoying a snowstorm as you’re comforted by a warm fire. Great imagery, Tom!

Thank you very much Paul, Now that I'm older much prefer to watch the snow from indoors preferably with drop of whiskey to help with the inner glow. Tom.

Finally, managed to add the fire video from utube. Making me sleepy looking at it lol. Well, wine is chilling come and join me, when I was younger I used to go to Ireland and back then they all had these open turf and log fires going and I used to just sit there soaking up the heat, radiators are not the same for sure. Tom.

I can feel the heat of the log, and see the snow. Wonderful imagery, Tom.
