I’ll say. We’re under a Fire Weather warning this weekend for single digit RH, off shore winds 30-50 from the N, temps in the low 70’s.
I’m burning Iron Bark Euc I dropped into a neighbors field last year to get rid of it

X 7 loads

Beauty sunset.
Fire is always a threat, there more than ever in your more-than-normal dry times isn't it.
I just watched "Only The Brave"
Had me thinking I would do that job (when I was younger), but it's a damn dangerous one too.
Those are real heroes.....

I'm a structural firefighter. Those wildland guys are absolutely insane. They go out to fight thousands of acres of wildfire with a giant backpack, a granola bar, and a weird looking shovel. No thanks, I'll keep my Engine, hose, and hydrant thank you!

Had one Friday night, but stayed inside for the most part to enjoy it. Did stay out there long enough to enjoy one can of beer though. Cut down an ash tree in town earlier this year that's just over 2' diameter, but hollow as all get out, probably 3-4" thick is all. I really like those pieces for campfires, and with these ones I can load them up with a few pieces as well. I've burnt ones that only had a small hole in the center and they burn a darn long time.

Love them hollow pieces!!!

I've gotten some before where there was so much air velocity that it seemed like a jet engine, noise as well. It would smolder out at times, then woosh, looked like a torch. Burning the brush pile tonight as we've probably had half inch of rain or so this afternoon, need to go check on it here soon.
