Subject: Forest Fire 2016

After a poor year of rain, the fires began early this year. The good news is that most of the dry foliage has been burned off below our property. The better news is that nobody was injured and no property damaged by fire. Below are a few photos.

Most of our fire fighting is waiting for the dry stuff to burn off below us, and guarding our property from fire. Fires rapidly consume the dry stuff on the slope below our fields while we rake away dry pine needles from the edge of our property. The fire burns in a jagged line from top of the mountain to the bottom. After the fire burns through, we kill off any residual flames left behind, so that we can watch the front without being flanked.


Fire, it gets hot.
