Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Practically every household burned Sulphur laden bituminous coal back 20 years ago when I was living in Ireland. if you got a good temperature inversion you'd be coughing black lung phlegm for a week.
I recall those days. The air - particularly the night air - was yellow and thick like a fog.
In contrast to that, if I could get to the top of the chimney here, I'd hover right over it and breathe deep the wonderful campfire smell a good wood fire makes.
Dang, sure miss having a woodstove, even though we cut and split 8 cords to keep us thru the winter.
It warmed you twice.
