beautiful photos--the fog is amazing when it's tucked into those hills.

the cold hasn't quite affected us here as much yet, since it's actually still been kind of warm, strangely enough!



The fog goes all the way to Umbria! I thought it was a piemonte/lombardia thing. I guess I better stay down here. We have fog about 3 or 4 days a year because it's always windy..... It looks nice in the the photos though.


I remember the fog. Now I'm homesick. Beautiful photographs, very enchanting.


Have you tried raising the furniture so it is all closer to the ceiling?

Judith in Umbria

I was born and reared in Maine and I don't recall being as cold there as I am in Umbria. It's definitely the damp. There are some efficient helpers though.

The electric mattress pad preheats the bed and dries out the sheets in about 15 minutes. The scaldino plugs in for 3-4 minutes and then stays hot for 2+ hours. And then, as you will have discovered, chopping the wood warms you more then the fire.

There is a reason for all this warm and fuel filled food we eat in winter. Salad? Uh-huh!

Lovely photo's , would it help to put a fan in say the ceiling of the main room and or bed rooms that would push the heat back down to the floor area. I know those electric wall heaters do that but not very well , just an old fashion big 3 hand fans moving slowly.Warm thoughts to all.
