Looks like our dry spell will break Sunday. And we'll have more rain next week.

But right now, it's so dry out that they actually had to close part of 95 near the Stafford/PW boundary because of a brush fire. Yikes! I love how this dry weather feels, but please everyone be careful with fire right now. This may not be the best time to toast s'mores in your backyard. And please--smokers--dispose of your butts properly!!!

I just saw on the news that 85 homes in Detroit are on fire due to winds and dry weather just like we're having today. So.... be careful out there.

Boy, that's the last thing Detroit needed. Although I can't help but wonder if a few of those fires were deliberately set.

OTOH, tinder dry weather and hot winds are a dangerous combo. I agree, this is NOT a good time to be careless with cigarettes.
