When it’s already freezing outside, no matter how much you love the sound of a running river, the freezing water makes it guess colder.
I was ready to go back to the cabin even before we got to the riverâ€¦ Once we got there, I slid on a wet rock as well as went face first into the icy water.
My partner was quick thinking as well as started a fire with some dry wood he found, despite the fact that I was already turning red. I sat by the fire until I was overheated enough to walk, as well as my clothing was almost dry, as well as then we made a mad dash for the cabin. Half an hour later, I was stiff from the freezing as well as damp clothes. He lit the fireplace while I wrapped up in a overheated blanket as well as took my wet clothing off. I don’t think what we would have done if there hadn’t been dry wood laid on the fireplace hearth. My partner wouldn’t have been able to get the fireplace burning, as well as we would have had to go home. The two of us talked about him starting the car as well as our going cabin early, despite the fact that I wanted to stay. I was dry because of the fireplace, as well as the flue was clean, so no smoke was coming back into the cabin. Thanks to the fireplace, our weekend went well, as well as I went back to the river without falling in again. Of course, the draw of the fireplace had us returning sooner than we expected. A picnic in the snow wasn’t half as enticing as a picnic in front of the fireplace.
