Burning in the Rain

A few good days of sun dried the old pile out well enough to burn... but we waited until rain started again to light it.

It was a BIG pile, and the rain would help keep it 'under control'.

Not much of it left here... just misc to push together.

The girls fired up the backhoe, and helped push the rest of the branches together.

They are a good crew, except they made Dad work the ground outside of the cab...

Even after 2 days of burning, when we got it all pushed together, it was still HOT and willing to burn.

It spent another 2 days (in the rain) smoldering and burning.

It is good to get the pile out of the way.

Too bad about so much rain - we didn't get to roast hotdogs.

Next time...
