We are about halfway through July, and at about half of our normal average rainfall. The ground is thirsty – marked by browning grass and wilting plants.

This is a reminder that even the smallest bonfires can cause great damage. Many people will be camping this weekend or hosting gatherings at their homes – if at all possible, refrain from fires until it rains.

While it may throw a wrench in your plans and smores might be off of the menu for the weekend, it is wise to be safe rather than sorry and exercise caution during these dry conditions.
