When my kids were young, no one was allowed to smoke on my property, even my parents.  they have both since (15 years) died of lung cancer.  My daughter once saw my dad smoking about age 8 and said "WOW" when smoke came out his mouth and nose.  back in the day, it was promoted as good for the nerves in the military.  I understand it is addictive and that most folks of that generation smoked.  Now they vape.  I started as a respiratory therapist in 1980 to work through school and then 85% of RTs smoked.  I did not want them to think it was cool cause they saw grandpa smoking.  Out of respect I assume most folks do not even think of smoking on my property.  We burn stuff in a barrel around the sawmill, and that is prob. a bigger fire hazard.  The sawdust can smolder like a punk.  I am responsible for that.  I still remember doing a demo at @customsawyer event where I used potassium permanganate and glycerin to demo spontaneous combustion to start fires, and my sawdust made fire starters.  A good time was had by all.   :)   I have a big burn barrel from a combine wheel, and if I have coals in there, I then fill it to the top with sawmill dust/shavings and it never catches fire but smolders away over 4 days or so.

Yea, some of us remember you thinking that starting a fire in a sawmill building was a good idea.  :D

It seems we are done with the hot for the year.  36 deg as I type this.  Was 60 deg yesterday for the high.  Probably about same for today.  Supposed to be a warm fall, so I assume that means a lot of 60s.  I wont complain about that.

got a lot done yesterday.  heat tolerance must wane as we get older.  Or we choose not to push and get acclimated to the heat, and only work hard when we want! :)

No more weather warming, frost warning in the morning. ;D

We have an 87° forecast for Friday but hopefully the 90°'s are gone.

I will probably be "bringing up da wood" this week so we will be ready when the cooler weather gets here.

High sixties at night here and close to 90° during the day for the next week or more.  We have not had rain in quite a while.  It looks like smoke puffs when walking in the yard and the grass is crunchy.

We had a bruiser here too @89°.  We are still topping records for heat and dryness.  :-X

It looks like we might get some precipitation Sat, Sun, & Mon of this and next week and with the temps dropping to 24° toward the middle of the week.  There is Snow in for 2am Monday.  Of course those forecasts are for the valley, not where we will be.  We need to be prepared for and expect anything.

We are excited!!   ;D

38F and stars this morning, but likely will drop some more by day break. Might be our first frost on the ridge.

 It is still hot down here, but I'm thankful we're out of those triple digit days. Grass is beginning to get crunchy again. We could use a good slow rain.

Beautiful here in RI.  mid 60's and clear since a DOWNPOUR on Saturday.  We are going to have a Hot spell climbing toward 80 this week ( 1919 80deg current high temp record for this Saturday).

The burn bans in several parishes around Baton Rouge have been lifted and the first meaningful rain since May has fallen last night.  Several inches of standing water at the sawmill shed but that will be gone by midday.

We got our first snow last night, just a dusting but it's here. :'(
