My official proclamation of having winter be over is now being made.
I’m sick of the snow and the cold, but there is one thing this time of year that I am even more tired of .
Since the street we live on is not paved, we will always have to contend with some amount of dust in the house. But in the wintertime, it escalates to phenomenal proportions.
And here is the culprit.
We installed this fireplace insert 3 years ago because the original fireplace, although functional, was not quite efficient as an overall heat source for the house.
And I love this woodburner, really I do. It is our primary source of heat in the winter and has saved us a buttload on heating fuel.
But it is the biggest dust factory in the world!
Heck, if I were to try and keep the dust down to a minimum in this house, I’d have to buy stock in Swiffer just to try and recoup my expense.
I wave my white flag. I surrender. I cannot win.
Dust, you have been a valiant foe and you have defeated me.
So to all those that enter our humble abode, please pay homage to the victor of this fight.
Just don’t write in it, OK?
