My adult child was raised in a tropical area. She just moved up North with her up-to-date spouse and she is so gleeful to see the snow for the first time. I told her that she needs to go sledding for me. Even at my age, I’d still go sledding. What she is gleeful most about is her up-to-date fireplace in her up-to-date home, but very few houses where my buddy and I come from have fireplaces. My friend and I rarely need heat down here. So, my child was quite happy to have a home in the woods with a giant fireplace. She told me that she enjoys everything about the fireplace, from the sight of her up-to-date spouse cutting and hauling wood to the crackle of the flames as it burnt the wood to the smell of smoke leaving the chimney. I’d never seen my child so thrilled about anything before like she is about the fireplace. She even sent me pictures and videos of it, with a fire going and without. She made the pictures and videos look very romantic. She took wonderful care in choosing what to put on the fireplace mantle. I asked her how else they planned to heat their house and she said the heat comes out of the vents, so I assume she has a ducted forced hot air distribution system, in other words, a furnace. I don’t think her fireplace would be giant enough to heat her home, not from the way she described her house, but I trust her up-to-date spouse to make sure she has heat. It’s her task to take care of her now.
