The time for this story would have been in the summer, before anyone used their chimneys. It's also important for people to understand the burning properties of each kind of wood, and the differences in the residue they leave in the chimney. But people will go on year after year, throwing anything they have onto the fire and never looking up the chimney. Then it's always such a tragedy when the chimney explodes. Personally, I'm tired of sucking down my neighbors' wood smoke, but I guess that's just something I'm going to have to deal with.
