I usually wait for the 3" snow rule here. Otherwise ya gotta get a permit. My dad got ticketed for it a couple times banned for a couple years. Woulda been jail time if he got caught burning without a permit. Ain't worth the hassles. Too close to civilization here.
With around 9 inches of snow coming in, I burned some chit wood that would be in an area I plow along with some fresh split pine. I was telling my wife that I plan on making it three feet wider so we can burn more of the dead pine during the winter and when it's wet out.By the size of that fire you won't get any snow within 100 yards just rain. Nothing like a good fire to warm the body and the soul. Enjoy
