PLANNED

 


Upon first sighting the smoke, it looks pretty serious.

Especially when you know the Prescott National Forest lies in that direction.



But it turns out the folks managing the forest have planned it all along and actually set the fire.

It's what they call a prescribed burn, to rid the forest of fuel for an un-prescribed burn later on.


So we're not to worry.

Can't help feeling sorry for folks living downwind of all that smoke though.

  2. The idea of smoke after what we went through in August/September, well, it gives me the shivers.

  3. After all the fires here, it's never good to see the sky filled with smoke like that.

  4. You have to have to hope they know what they are doing as they are playing with fire.

  6. Fingers crossed the smoke isn't too bad...prescribed burns are important to keep the fuel load down.

  7. I hadn't heard about any prescribed burns but if it keeps the summer fires at bay, I'm all for it.
