staal decided to burn the pile of brush we accumulated over the summer. i helped keep an eye on the fire for a while. it was a good way to keep warm on a cold day. i found a wonderfully textured piece of ice that had formed on a tarp nearby.
seems like this fall and winter may be shaping up to be cooler than last year.
