On Monday I pulled the jute rug out from the basement where it had gotten wet during the last storm. (The electricity had gone out and left the sump pump without power.) I thought I could burn it rather than hauling it to the dump. There was also some pieces of wood from discarded furniture -- including, unfortunately an old TV case that the Kendalls had left behind. Jake and Porter added Silva's Christmas tree that they had salvaged from the woods where he'd discarded it.
And, well, long story short, I've now used up my one free warning from the fire department when it comes to illegal burning. Funny how quickly Porter and Jake disappeared once the firemen started showing up.
