I Didn't Want to but......

PostBy: Lightning On: Mon Apr 10, 2017 9:54 pm

I let the fire burn out while I spend a few days in Miami. Yep, I really had planned on doing an epic 4 day burn but just couldn't see the logic behind it with 70's in New York while I'm away. I'm kinda disappointed lol. I had it all figured out how I was gonna attempt a 4 day fire, and pulled the plug on it. She finally went out today, this afternoon. Last tending was Saturday afternoon.

Its always like a friend moved letting the fire go out for the season. I switched to wood on the 1st but its just not the same. Enjoy Florida!

That explains why it was a few degrees cooler outside today. I figured either you or FF let the fire burn out :D
Enjoy!

With this years crazy weather pattern I have let mine go out several times. We had a couple nights in the mid 30's, then I let it go out Sunday night. Forecast is for the 80's today, lows for the next few days in the 40's, so I'm probably done for the season. I will give it a couple weeks before cleaning it out.

Thanks for the replies fellas! We enjoyed hanging out on the balcony, drinking beers with a little charcoal grill cooking chicken, sausage, hamburgers and hotdogs lol. Today we are currently taking a road trip down thru the Keys. There's 11 of us, we rented a big van. It's been 42 years since I was down here last, I was only 4 years old. I vividly remember the bridges out over the ocean and getting burnt to the point of blisters lol. I'm stoked :D
