Fortunately the fire here was short lived.
Check this out. We've been on a burn ban all summer which has made camping a real bummer. We haven't had(just guessing) an 1" of rain all summer. The state just lifted the burn ban last week, but still no rain. They're reasoning is that the nights are getting colder(fine I'll give you that one), but they're second reason is that hunting season has started so there's more people in hunt camps. WHAT!!! So we can't have fires all summer in designated camping areas with steel fire rings and no under brush, but the hunters can just start fire anywhere they set camp?
You know I'm so glad that my hard earned tax dollars are going into stupid peoples pockets. It just makes me all warm and fuzzy.
