    I have a theory that draft in a chimney will be greatly increased during periods of high humidity. He Elk would ya go crank up the VC and let me know what you find out? I'd like to get this resolved today, so be sure to get a good rip roaring fire going this evening.

    Anyone else on the East coast...feel free to help me get my answer!!!

    Not the biggest fan of Compaq and windows but for $125 this laptopt P3 1000 wireless is not thar bad. Maybe I can get my wife's attention, say honey can you get me another beer?

    I have always found the opposite. Both heat and humidity slow draft.

    Reasons? My guess is that heavy air holds down other air trying to get out of the chimney!

    Also, draft is partially the difference between the temps inside and outside.

    I find that chimney draft best when it is cold and when the air is light.
