I thought the moon looked full tonight too, but am glad to know that Wednesday it really will be! Your description of the burning reminded me of Mexico, where during the rainy season, all the vacant lots grow so thick with greenery that even the hulks of old cars and God knows what else get covered. During the dry season, lot owners will often toss some kerosene on the lot, light it and then mosey off, much to the consternation of the gringos living nearby who are watching the flames licking at the overhead electric and phone wires. It always seems to work out fine, but terrifying for awhile. Please keep that pile small next time, like you promised!
