I've had this firepit for several years. Last weekend it was just chilly enough, and it seemed a very good time to drag it out and light the fire. We enjoyed a delightful evening. Alabama winters are the BEST. Oh sure we have a little snow or ice but for the most part, it's really cold, warmer, cold snap, warmer, snow scare, warmer weather, ice storm!.. pretty good weather...... you get the idea. And I was able to experiment with my "fire" photography!) The next time we gather, do you think mashmallows and graham crackers are in order or........wine.....champagne...hmmmm...no brainer.
