Balrog fire? [In reply to] Can't Post

The truth is, Rivendell was connected to Moria through an enormous system of underground pipes. The heat of the Balrog was funneled through these pipes to Rivendell. This also explains the perpetually falling leaves. No plant can stand balrog stink for an extended period of time. And, naturally, it explains why Elrond boards the ship with Frodo after the destruction of the One Ring. As the Balrog was also dead, the winters in Rivendell had just become too chilly.

Another interesting detail is that long ago, before the Elves dug the heating pipes, Rivendell had windows made of the finest Elvish glass. It was Aragorn's grandfather Arador, an exceptionally clumsy ranger, who destroyed them. This is how he got his name. He would always run against doors and windows, shattering them. Each time, he would exclaim loudly: "Aaaarrrrr! A door!" or "Aaarrrrr! A window!"
