I was supposed to put this on yesterday. I told one of my followers that I would, and I apologize to catsathebar.org for telling a slight fib. 🙂 I forgot that we had to go to visitation last night and I was busy trying to get some house work done that I have been putting off for to long. It is time for burning pastures, brush and anything else that needs to be burned. We have been seeing smoke on the horizon in all directions. And hearing sirens as the firefighters have been busy keeping uncontrolled burns under control. In Shawnee and Jackson county anyway.
The CRP land to the east of us was getting burned late in the afternoon on March 11. They started with a back fire. This video is of that start to the bigger burn. I don’t know for sure how much acreage is over there, but it is quite a bit I think. I do know that the fence line between there and our house is only about an eighth of a mile. We watched and I took pictures and the videos from our north porch. I hope you can hear the crackle of the fire as it gets going. I could even feel the heat a little bit as I was taking the video. I can’t imagine being any closer.
This second video is only about 57 seconds. It was taken a little after dark. The fires burned for quite awhile. I don’t know when they actually died down. I woke up early in the morning about 3 or 4am and they were out. You could still see some smoke drifting up a little here and there.
These are some pictures taken before and after dark. Okay I am having trouble getting more pictures on. Apparently since I am putting videos on I am running out of me space. I either have to finally go to a premium plan or just delete some shots from my library. Guess if I am to continue blogging, I will have to eventually go to a premium plan anyway. We’ll see. I will get back to the pictures soon I hope.
Stay Safe and God Bless!
