...why not watch the Log Channel?
It was bloody cold tonight, and we lit the first fire in the fireplace, so tonight we're watching the Log Channel. It's Oak Week, and we'll be watching all the ways that fire and oak interact. Hickory Week is awesome. That's later this season. We'll also have a special Black Walnut Weekend due to the tree that fell at the shop. Too checked for anything else, we'll burn it.
This is the last little taste of fall...the leaves are being ripped from the trees with the violent gale that's blowing through here tonight. Southwest winds are usually indicative of a fairly large low pressure area, and this is no exception.
A careful examination of branches will show a leaf scar, where the leaf was attached to the twig. There will be another posting on this as I find it fascinating. Did you know the hickory leaf leaves a three-lobed leaf scar? Now you do.
Winter, I fear, is just around the corner.
Winter, I hope, is just around the corner.
