This Has To Be It
It's May 27th and close to 5 in the afternoon. The weather? Rain with a high of 53 degrees at the end of a Spring month that should bring nothing but sun and 80 plus degrees in heat.
I've burned through two and a half cords of oak this winter. Three weeks ago it was cold, rainy and windy. I made a fire and said, "This is the last one of the season."
Two week ago to the day it was cold, lots of rain and plenty of wind. I made a fire and said, "This surely has to be the last fire until November."
Last week. . . well, you get the picture.
Then today. Cold and rain. No sun. As I write this there's five sticks of oak left from the 2 1/2 cords. I'm burning those babies today 'cause this will definitely be and I want it to be the last fire of the season.
Bring on the sun. Bring on the heat. It's time for lots and lots and lots of 110 degree weather.
