When I returned to our house on Saturday evening I was met with the sight of fields burning around our house. It did cause a bit of excitement. Apparently my neighbor decided to burn the weeds and dead grass in the hay field, since it didn’t get mowed and baled last summer.
There was an announced burn ban which took effect the previous Monday. I was told the State Police showed up and issued a ticket. It was still burning at 7:30pm, but died down shortly after that.
Sunday was a beautiful day. Eric and Trevor opened up the sand box while I started recycling lumber by pulling nails. I listened to the NCAA March Madness Tournament – Cornell winning vs Wisconsin and Michigan State winning vs Maryland.
