April through June, 2010

March was so dry and sunny we thought we had missed our chance to burn the last slash pile. However, April brought more snow and we took the opportunity to burn early the morning of the 4th. It was the biggest of the piles we have burned, but winds were light, there was plenty of snow cover and there were no nearby trees, so we started it in several places at once. We put it out 3 days later. More pictures are here. The DNRC came to inspect and agreed to pay us the $125 withheld from the logger pending completion of the burns; we used the money to take Dan and Jennie out for a well-deserved dinner.
