Let me start with a little background. My 23 year old son owns a mobile home and 9 acres of land that my husband and I sold him a year ago...
So last week my husband mentioned he should clean up the yard now that you can see the ground. That, right there, was the First mistake. Jay(my son) has been laid off work till April and has plenty of time on his hands-so not a good thing- so my husband thought Jay cleaning his yard would give him something constructive to do. Uh huh.rolleyes
Well, he and 3 friend set out Tuesday, on one of the nicer days we've had, gathering all the brush and all the empty beer boxes he accumulated over the winter(he is a 23 year old bachelor) and made a little burn pile behind his trailer. rolleyes The fire burned down so the went around front and started gathering brush and odd pieces of garbage that had blown on his lawn over the winter when his friend noticed flurries of ash snowing down on him. "Uhhhh, Jay," he hollers, "I think we have a problem." They run around the back of the trailer and the fire has spred up the bank.
So these young manly men decide, "We can handle this." and start filling buckets of water from inside and running them out to the fire. This last all of 3 minutes whe a gust of wind came along and with a giant wush, the fire instantly spred up the mountain. At this point they concede defeat and call the fire department. Three hours later, with two towns being called in, the fire had been contained.
The pics really don't do justice, you can't see the other side of the mountain it burned.:/ JAY, Dude! Next time maybe use a RAKE!rolleyes And no disrepect to to the Wells Fire Department...but I see all these pics on the loops of these buff firemen with there ripped abs. Ummm, apparentlu they don't live in Wells.lol
When Jay came off the mountain, all red faced, sweaty and coughing, I asked him what the hell he thought he was doing? "Just trying to grow green grass, mom."It really never ends.
