Fire season is rolling with a vengance here. We aren’t having big fires, but there have been a lot of little ones (less than 10 acres). Yesterday, a loblolly plantation caught fire. It burned about 40 acres before the tractor could get a line around it, needless to say, my chat with my FF lasted about 10 minutes last night.

Most of the fires here this time of year are caused by people throwing out coals from the wood stove thinking they are cold or people burning brush piles. There are relatively few started by lightning out here. I am worried that this one may be a busy year, the ground is dangerously dry already….

Well, I can’t wait till next week. Its gonna be spring break, I’m going up to spend the week with my FF. But of course I’m taking my dog for company, he is probably going to be out on fires the whole time anyway… :( 

hugs to everyone…..

Abby and Sammi…hope you all are healed up soon, its gonna be time to stay up with the message board soon to keep up with the fires.
