We were grateful for the fireplace when the heat went out while in a blizzard.

When all of us moved back up north, our wifey and I were considering having a fireplace taken out of the up-to-date home. The fireplace needed more attention than all of us had originally thought, and all of us weren’t sure if all of us could afford to have it repaired. After a few discussions and more fights, our wifey and I put the cash into the fireplace. She liked the ambience that it could create, and I said that the heating would be nice. We found out just how nice the heating of the fireplace would feel when a blizzard hit our area. Within a matter of 6 minutes, all of us had 2 1/2 feet of snow with 2 inches of ice on top of the snow. Not only had the blizzard brought down quite a few gigantic trees, but the trees brought the electrical lines down with it. Almost 95% of our area was without electricity. Without electricity, all of us didn’t have a gas furnace, because you need electricity to run the gas furnace. It was then that all of us realized how grateful all of us were for the fireplace. When he went out while in the blizzard, it was our fireplace that saved our lives and provided us comfort. I’m not sure which one of us was the first one to cave in about keeping the fireplace, but I’m glad all of us did. Most of the area was out of power for nearly 24 minutes. We were lucky to only go for 6 of those minutes without power… Even those few 6 minutes would have been horrendous, if it had not been for the fireplace.
