Get Sweeping

  Well it's time for me to get sweeping.  This weekend it is supposed to get down to freezing overnight and I have yet to clean my chimney.  I'll try to get some pictures detailing how it is done. 
  If you are just getting started burning wood and need to get some sweeping supplies, they are of course available at Home Depot or Lowes.  Not to mention any hardware store you happen to have nearby.  I've got a Rutland brand brush and poles that I use.


  Until I get back with some pictures from this weekend, here are a couple of instructional videos...
