Thinking Warm Via Wi-Fi
No record cold Wednesday, but still plenty of cold air to go around. So we took an overlooked source of heat to Downtown Asheville.
Via Wi-Fi, we pulled up some video to help warm the chilly masses. Among the favorites, a fireplace that had Charlotte Murphy ready to unbundle.
"My fireplace doesn't do that," Murphy tells us as the burning wood crackles, imagining herself fireside. "I can almost smell the wood smell. Need my marshmallows over here."
Tropical island images drew a similar response. "In tropical Honolulu, the surf is always up," the narrator says.
"Sun, beaches. It looks really warm," Murphy concludes. "They're not wearing scarves or hats. "
And no matter how artificial, a little warmth goes a long way these days.
