Burning Bush

Did I day burning bush? I meant burning brush; this stuff is definitely getting consumed. On a rare November trip to the lake where the weather was great with temperatures at +10 and no snow, we observed the annual brush burning event. A neighbor organized the burning pile through the year and several local cottagers contributing to the pile. This year we both participated in contributing to the pile and observing the burn. We’ve heard rumors that there is a big road party in conjunction with this activity but we were heading back into the city before there was any sign of a party but they had another couple of hours of active burning ahead. The wind was light but not from the best direction, I hope they kept everything under control. In years past we’d just see the charred remains in the spring and were none the wiser. Now we know how it happens. Posted by Picasa
