Rain, rain, and more rain...

Living on the river, I pay special attention to the multi-day storms that roll through the area and areas North of us. Just two years ago I was running around the house with sandbags and plastic sheeting to protect us in case the berm failed.

Today will be the fourth (or fifth) consecutive day of thunderstorms to roll in.

The grass is certainly green but the yard has turned to mud, the backyard campsite has been destroyed, and even getting smoke today from my hand drill might be a pipe-dream.

It's always good to practice however. The time it is hardest to get a fire going is, most likely, the time you most need a fire. These are certainly less than optimal conditions for firestarting...

Stay dry,
