A to Z 2015 Challenge F is for Fuego

January 2015
Controlled burn in Siskiyou County
Clearing land in the winter to
prevent summer wildfires.

That makes sense. And fire is actually good for the ground.

Essential to do every single winter. It's going to be another dry summer. I'm not looking forward to that. It is raining here this morning, but not enough.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

Thanks for introducing me to this new word :)

I have friends who just burned almost a hundred acres of their brush to clear it out.

Paul Pietrangelo said...

It's a logical thing around here each year in the spring to prepare the ground. It makes sense. Have a great day. See ya.

Better a controlled burn, as much as i hate to see the poor plants and trees go through that, than the uncontrolled alternative.

Stephen Hayes said...

Anything that can be done to prevent forest fires should be done.

I’m popping in via the A to Z Challenge, as one of the assistants.

I love the sound of words!
... and this one has a distinct aural appeal plus it rolls off the lips... beautifully!

We do that here too, it also helps new growths to come in better!
