Where there’s smoke…

After more than a month-and-a-half of drought and a week of chasing Lee by phone (Lee is the man who helped dismantle the barn and was to burn it, but who doesn’t have a phone and is near impossible to track down), the barn is finally burned on August 21!

Barn Fire Smoke

These photos don’t do it justice. At times, the flames were two-thirds the height of the surrounding trees, but Lee knew what he was doing, and only one branch of a nearby tree burned slightly. Other than that, only the pile itself burned.

We could feel the heat from the house. The fire started around 8:30 am. The big flames were gone by noon. We could still see a glow that night. Puffs of smoke drifted out of the pile for several days after.
