This morning I woke up early to the smell of burnt wood. I checked the stove in the kitchen and went back to bed. Later I learned that a crofter’s cottage at the folk museum had caught fire during the night. In the afternoon I went over and made this quick sketch. The charred remains made a stark contrast to the snow. While the adjacent cottage had only been scorched the little old building that was made in the 17th century burned to the ground.
