Turned the News On...

The Lead Story…

A massive mulch fire in Richmond, Texas. Mulch? Fire? Now that I think about it, seems possible. Probable in fact. Never considered it before, but yeah it would be combustible. Mix that stuff right it will produce methane… A mulch fire. Jeebus.

And then...

Rodeo has shut down all outside activity due to high winds. Hmmmmm. The last couple times I was out on my patio, the wind is strong enough that it’s blowing spray up from the swimming pool. 5 Floors up. Really whistling through my concrete canyon tonight. *grins*

Who Knew?

The Whitehouse has it’s own Flickr account!

Of course it does!

Being able to put your name behind ‘Official White House Photo by’ must be kind of cool. Bet the hours are ungodly.

Yeah, if mulch gets a little moisture in it, then it starts to decompose and becomes hot. When I was a kid, we had to get the hay in dry. Otherwise there was a risk of the hay shed catching alight. Seems weird, I know. I have put my hand in lawn clippings here, and it is very warm in the centre! Similarly, my compost bin is warm.

Spray coming up from the swimming pool to the fifth level? Yikes!

There's a job for you, T!

I used to garden a bit... If it ain't warm, it ain't composting!

I suspected that!

Still...lead story? I guess we need to be thankful it wasn't something worse.

The last pile of mulch I ordered became hot to the touch, as the previous correspondent suggests.

Mine too. But it was a while back.

And this was a veritable mountain of the stuff that was burning.

I didn't realize the WH had a flickr account...

I do wonder what MO was doing announcing that Oscar nomination. Seemed out of place - and why flanked by the military? Lost on me I guess.

Must not have gone that far back. Or I may have just glossed over that one. What movie was it?

I saw that, but didn't realise it was MO! Well, heard it more than saw it...

It was windy here in Bama last night. I laid in bed and felt the house creaking and grinding.
