Red Flag Fire Danger is in effect today.
It would be a great day to avoid setting a brush fire!
We never did get that thunderstorm yesterday, but we sure got some wind and a dramatic shift in temperature!
It sure is a funny spring.
We heard from Ted out on the AT!
He is just outside Waynesboro, and at roughly 800 miles in he is in real need of a new pair of shoes to hike in. Today hopefully will see our trail hero newly shod!
Crazy natural fact of the day from the Mass. DCR:
New leaves of Ox-eye daisy are good in salad, though they do have a strong flavor!
