March 29th, 2008 @ 2:00 pm - the ambient air temperature exceeds the air humidity. Perfect conditions to burn the native prairie vegetation.

We have the Illinois-EPA burn permit in hand, as well as clearance from the Elmhurst fire department, which send a truck on standby. We also have neighbor's and friends helping.

Noticed my neighbors cedar fence? We carefully soaked the wood prior to the burn. You actually can see how it steams.
