A Night of Work and Fun

The other night it was -6 degrees but the forecast was for -25. We figured that night was as good as any to burn down one of our brush piles from the summer. We started fires on both ends of the pile and watched the flames take over.
Always watched over by my trusty Fire Marshal who was close at hand
As the fire grew the two flames met in the middle and made one large fire in the dark snowy night.
And even at -6 degrees and snowing we were warm and comfortable enough to sit in the snow and watch the show.
Because not much else is more soothing than a fire
And knowing that your evening enjoyment is also removing a huge pile of brush from your yard!!

I understand the feeling of the pile being gone. Dad burned ours and took down alot more trees and the outhouse. It looks so nice!
