Nothing here since my last note of rain. Might have to start watering the fruit trees again if we don't get some rain too.

Speaking of fruit trees, I discovered that a varmint climbed up into one of the pear trees and ravaged a few of the fruits. I didn't think they would be ripe yet so I haven't been checking. Besides, the yellow flies are on their way out, so while they were swarming, no way I wanted to be outside anyway.

Wrapped some aluminum flashing around the base of the tree to keep him from being able to climb, and put the partially eaten pears laying on the ground into a live trap to see if I can catch the sucker. I'm not interested in feeding his butt all summer.

I think at the next gun show in Tallahassee I'm going to look for a night vision scope for one of my rifles. This SOB took most of the peaches this year, and appears hell bent on getting the pears and Asian pears too. I need to put a stop to his nightly buffet meals on our fruit trees. So it's either the live trap, or he becomes maggot bait.

If you had looked at the weather radar in my area today, you would have thought we got dumped on with rain. Was not the case, however. Even though we got a decent helping of thunder, we just got a few sprinkles of precipitation that barely registered 0.01" on the rain gauge.

So, been watering the fruit trees..... "Rain" wasn't any help whatsoever.

We had thunder rumbling all around us yesterday and the humidity went into overdrive, but no rain. We seem to be in the pattern where storm cells will head towards us, break up into nothing, then reform on the other side. No matter which direction they come from.

Been watering the fruit trees every day.

Temps have been getting into the low to mid 90s every day. Overnight lows aren't getting below 80 degrees.

Not sure of the origin at this point but I didn't realize it was that dry down there.

Connie told me she was listening to it on the radio this morning and some of the locals there said it started from a prescribed burn.

From eyeballing where they are saying the fire started (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Bu...!4d-84.8595878), it certainly looks to me that a prescribed burn on national forest land could have started it all. Those people always seem to pick the worst possible times of the year to do those kinds of burns.

36 homes lost is my understanding. And the majority of people there didn't have insurance. They say it happened so fast they barely had time to get out alive. Sad.

Yeah. Wonder what really caused it? Maybe a meth lab accident?
