This is my first winter and Mother Nature is really good to grant my dream of a White Christmas. Todate, we accumulated about 120 inches of snow since the start of winter. Coming from a tropical country where temperature never goes below 75 degrees, adjustment with the cold weather is indeed tough. So if I don't really have grave reason to go out, staying at home, sipping hot cocoa with miniature marshmallows beats the cold. But my in-laws hate winter. I can't blame them. With the current high price of heating oil, keeping our home warm is hurting our pocket. So they bought this Amish Roll-N-Glow electric fireplace. It is a good alternative for heating oil because it is energy efficient and very convenient because it has a remote control to turn it on/off and to regulate the heat. Not to mention that it looks stylish in our living room with it's cherry wood panels made by the Amish whose craftsmanship is flawless. The coal and the flame look real. We love our new Amish Roll-N-Glow electric fireplace because it not only saves us a lot of money but it really keeps us warm this winter.
