FRIDAY NIGHT ENTERTAINMENT







And what did you do tonight? Not to worry, this was a controlled fire. At least you get to see all your neighbors this way. Everyone shows up for a good fire:)

  1. Well you scared me for a minute! I thought you were in a bit of trouble there! What did I do, nothing, sitting here! I am really bored tonight, it seems so unusually quiet except for the holling wind!

  2. Seriously! Only when I moved to the Pacific NW did I learn that people set fire to things on purpose (non-arson, I mean.)

  7. So who brought the hot dogs and marshmallows?

    My dad used to burn off a big hillside on our property but one time the wind caught it and it spread too fast and headed for the woods. We all beat the fire out with wet gunnysacks. It was really quite terrifying.

  9. I'm glad your controlled fire didn't get out of hand. I had one that did and I will never forget the sheer terror.

  11. The fire department was present and they supervised 70 acres of burning on Friday night. It was all certainly an erie and blackened sight in the morning. Yes, if the conditions are not right a fire like that can get out of control and that thought is frightening. I took that last picture from the door at the back of our barn and right after I snapped the photo I felt the wind shift just a moment and the flames whipped toward me. I could certainly tell how dangerous this was, even controlled.

    No s'mores, hotdogs, marshmallows -- what a bummer!

    Thanks for you comments.

  12. When I was with the fire department, we loved controlled burns. The good folks would call in and "warn us" and the ones who didn't call in, well, they'd get a "visit" and have their controlled burn all wet within seconds.
