Burn Ban Lifted
The Oklahoma burn ban is finally over. We have not had a good soaking rain since October. OCTOBER! This past week we have had some good soaking rains though. Last night we had a major thunderstorm. And judging by the sound, I could have sworn lightening struck our front trees more than once. They are still standing though, so I guess not. It was a loud night last night, and it lasted ALL night long. I'm glad the burn ban is over. Now we can finally do some grilling outside, and hopefully we will get to do fireworks on the Fourth of July. Believe it or not, the fate of the 4th of July was starting to become a big concern. We aren't completely out of the woods yet. The burn ban could be reinstated at any time. Actually, some western Oklahoma counties still have the burn ban in effect even now. Good luck and many rain dances to them.
