We installed a large parlor woodstove to heat our downstairs (does a wonderful job!) this past fall. Friday afternoonthe stove pipe split at the seam spewing smoke into the house. We let the fire die out and DH said he would fix it in the morning. I freaked wondering what we would do for heat that night .... until DH reminded me we do have a furnace! Amazing how we come to depend on the simplist things in our life.
