Trail of 100 Giants Fire

The Trail of 100 Giants — a protected grove of Giant Sequoia trees — caught fire around July 21. None of the redwoods were lost. Here is some of the aftermath as the fire fighters managed controlled burns to burn down some of the fuel.

Cleaning The Ashes Out Of Your Wood Burning Stove

If you use your wood burning stove only occasionally, for ambiance or an occasional blast of heat, cleaning out the ashes will be no big deal. You use your stove for a day or three, let it cool, and then clean out the ashes. You might even have a stove that collects ashes in a tray underneath the fire box. Simply pull it out when the stove is cool and dump the ashes. It is simply no big deal.

If you use your stoves continuously from the fall in the spring as we do, you need a better strategy. It takes hours for a stove to cool and over a day for the ashes to cool completely. You cannot go that long without a fire, at least not in our house. You need a strategy to remove warm ash.

First Fire

November 14 was the date of our first fire of 2009, in a mountain home warmed only with wood heat. Just when you announce you have had no need, you do. I was going to wait a few days and only get the house warm in the run-up to Thanksgiving. Mom caved "for mental health reasons." 

November 14 is a record for this property, at least since my parents purchased it in 1982. I may begin to track it and conduct a Sequoia National Forest study of climate change.
