Prairie Fire!

Well, I did not take lunch out since Ranch hand #1 had to come home and get a bit for the drill and rest from putting out a Prairie Fire.  What??? Why did they not call me so I could rush out there and document this important event??? Some people!  Brian was welding something for the gate and the wind gusted up and sent some sparks flying. He didn't have any firefighting tools in his truck, so he called Hand #1 to get his rear end back out there and help him.  By the time Hand #1 got there, the fire had moved around 100 yards along the ditch.  Note to self: when there is a Prairie Fire Alert on the internet, you better bring fire fighting tools along with you. Or else don't weld things.

Baker township volunteer fire dept had had numerous occasions to caution Ranch hand #1 about his pyrotechnic tendencies and insistence on burning piles in windy weather, but this was totally not his fault.

oh well, crisis averted.  Film at 11:00. ( wish I had some good footage of this, but charred ditch is better than nothin! right?)

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
