Plume of Smoke
Farmers are burning fields & getting ready for spring planting.
We have a great volunteer fire department in this area & have first hand knowledge of the fact.
Several years ago on a nice, sunny, spring day we where burning ditches. The flames where out so we went in to have lunch.
Glancing out the window, I saw a pickup barreling down our driveway & commented, "Gee whiz, what are they in such a hurry for?"
A young man jumped out & said that our hay stack was on fire.
At first I didn't believe him, as we had been burning about a quarter of a mile away from the stacks, but low & behold there was smoke rising.
The firemen came rushing to the rescue. It took them hours of hard work to get the smoldering hay stack to stop burning!
