    fire hazard time

    A friend was mowing her field yesterday and struck a rock. There was a spark that set off a fire that spread into a large wildfire.
    Now, that is dry, folks. Most of center of country is hot-hot-hot and tinder dry. And forecast is for hotter.
    Our area is under a burn band as it should be.
    I fixed my mower this a.m. and did a little cutting. The dust was incredible, dangerously thick to breath. I quit. I don't live on a golf course and ain't gonna worry about appearances. Somebody don't like it? They are welcome to bring their goat over.
    Be careful out there.

    All of Southern Indiana is now under a burn ban. Good times ahead for the 4th of July. Talking like fireworks maybe cancelled due to lack of rain.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Our weather this year is totally different than all the other lower 48 states. Our temperatures are below average and our rainfall is above average. I might not be able to start a fire outside if I used gasoline! Another cool wet day today (56 degrees F with an off and on drizzle) and I am loving it. It sure beats the weather I experienced in Tulsa earlier in the week.
