Fire crews still on the scene at Sauratown Mountain

The fire is in the vicinity of nearby Volunteer Road in the Pinnacle community.  Crews used a bulldozer Tuesday afternoon to create a fire break and protect homes on Sugar Bush Lane in southwestern Stokes County.  It’s unclear what started the wildfire.

Jimmy Holt, with the N.C. Forest Service in Guildford County, telling the Winston-Salem Journal that “after three of the wettest years on record, (we) forget how dry conditions can get. We are in the beginning of fall fire season and conditions are drying out. With leaves falling, people start burning debris. That’s the #1 cause of wildfires…’ https://journalnow.com/news/local/sauratown-mountain-wildfire-burning-in-remote-terrain-firefighters-hiking-in-to-contain-the-flames/article

Surprising Headline of the Morning

        SURVEY: 1 in 6 Americans Have Never Left Their Home State

A new survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Little Passports reveals that 16% have never left their home state and 14% of US residents have never traveled outside of the country. https://news.yahoo.com/survey-reveals-one-six-americans-154737064.html

 

In a strange new poll, one out of every six Americans said they use their dishwasher primarily for a use other than washing dishes.

A solid 60% majority responded, “To wash dishes,” while another 25% said they don’t own a dishwasher. The rest of us use our dishwasher primarily to…

“dry hand-washed dishes” or to ‘store kitchen items”!
