Lesson #1: Never use your fireplace during a Nor’easter with 40–60 MPH wind gusts
I got home tonight around 9 p.m. and yes, I had electricity! (Thank you Mr. Edison!). But, I also walked into a home that smelled like a smokehouse without any of the benefit (yummy BBQ). Last night, without any electricity, I was determined to keep the house as warm as a possible so I could spend the night here. So, I did what any person might do, I lit a fire. However, due to the heavy winds, the fire kept coming back into the living room. So, rather than put out the fire, I decided to just move to a different room. I didn’t really realize how smoky the house was until I came home tonight. It stinks. Anyone know how to get a smoky smell out of my living room, my couch, my carpet, my love seat, etc? Suggestions wanted!
