Today was cooler, but less wind. I hear the weather is supposed to turn back towards winter for the rest of the week.. and this was the last "good day" for a while. Perfect time to squeeze in a run.
Back to Coralville.... We have been to Muscatine a couple of times, but today was one where we ad errands and needed to get back in a timely manner.... I think.
There was a bit of a breeze... and with temps hovering in the low 40's Cheryl took a bit of a risk running in shorts. She says running in the longer pants keeps her too warm....so Shorts are worth it in the end.
Not only was the day good for running, but also for burning!
I have to admit.. I admire Iowa for its burn policy.... even here in the city! I may be showing my Natural Resources Geek-dom here, but contrary to Smokey, Walt Disney, and the numerous PSA's about fire.... Fire is GOOD for a forest.
|Hmm....A little out of control.|
So I'm impressed that Iowa seems to recognize this and keeps Serious Prairie wildfires at bay by choosing a cool day and biting off small bits of the area to burn. Bravo! This was the second time we were able to witness the parks people setting up a controlled burn. I like it! It also looked like Cheryl was Speedy Gonzales with a trail of smoke behind her.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thursday. If you live close to Iowa, chances are the temps are going to drop a bit for a while. Enjoy the "warm-ish" weather while you can! Thanks for stopping in.
