Bon motherfucking fire!

I want one of these mobile fire pit thingies. It borders on trashy and chic and I love it. I like the whole industrial design look. I think it would be fun to pull out to the front yard and fire it up during the holidays when the house is lit up all pretty. When it's like 65 degrees outside and we're freezing. Pull up a few chairs have some coffee, wine, cider, hot chocolate, and roast marshmallows or reheat some pizza on a slab of wood.
Wanna come?

"when it's 65 and we're freezing". Heh heh ... it's easy to see that you've never lived through a REAL winter. Where I live, we already have 12 inches of snow on the ground and the temparture is hovering around 15 F. I've already been cross-country skiing twice this winter. A few more inches of snow and I'll dig out the snowshoes. I love winter so much. I really don't think I could live year-round in a climate that never gets snow.

Schmikey- I was kidding. We live in California. Of course we have no winter.
Where do you live? Canada?
I wouldn't know what to do with weather as you describe.
Actually I was kidding, but when you live here 60 is starting to get a little nipply.
So this wussy girl likes to keep warm by a raging bonfire during "our" winter months.
I know. I know. Laughable.
Thanks for stopping by.

Oh, sista, I know you're kidding, but this made me laugh out loud!! Here, 65 degrees is still shorts and flip-flops weather!!

That really is a cool fire pit, though. Mine desperately needs to be replaced. I'd really like to figure out a way to do a "built-in" but since I don't really have a backyard anymore, it's probably not possible. My whole yard is one big deck, so I have a feeling that mixing a fire pit with a wooden deck is a no-no. :(

Chocolate, pizza, and marshmallows works for me.

Yes, I'm in Canada, and I know you were kidding. I'm in Winnipeg, which is about a 3 hour drive north of Fargo, ND. Our winters are very similar to theirs. In January and February, the cold can be brutal. It's easy to get 2 or 3 weeks in a row where the daily high never gets above -25 Celsius (about -15 Fahrenheit). Every couple of years it reaches -40 for a few days.

Winter is what you make of it. You can be bitter about it and coop yourself inside by the heater, or you can throw on some warm clothing, get outside and embrace it. Between toboganning, skiing, skating, ice fishing, and a whole bunch of other things, you would not go stir crazy. My daughter and I had a blast building a snowman yesterday then having a snowball fight.
