Great information! Rep to each of you for taking the time to educate me.
I'm less concerned about the gas smell now. I'll miss the smell of wood burning but I have a small chimenea outside and can have little outdoor fires occassionally. I found my first black widow spider outside yesterday so the idea of bringing loads of wood into the house in the dark makes me nervous...those little buggers can hide themselves. I'm going to check into the costs and availability of getting a gas insert to maximize the heat output of the existing fireplace.....that seems to be the best plan based on y'all advice. And thanks for making the point about a generator. I had already thought about getting one to keep from losing the food in the freezers when the power goes out.
