==”When trees fall down after a short period of time, they become very dry – really like a matchstick … and they can explode,” Trump said as he and others breathed in the smoky, hazy air near Sacramento.==
Trees can explode, but it’s usually limited to when they’re struck by lightening. Lightening super heats the tree sap quickly and resulting steam release can often times lead to a tree “exploding.” I’ll go out on a limb and say that the intense heat from fires can also cause sap to boil, not as fast as from a lightening strike, and the potential for explosion is there.
Just canceled our subscription to the State Journal-Register, again. This time we got two months on a six month subscription. We missed having a paper but I’m through with this. And papers wonder why they have no subscribers.
Seems to me that this run on Kilbride is pointless. If I were the IL Dems, I’d redistrict thenIllinois Supreme Court after the census (actually, I would have done it a long time ago). They have the ability to do it; why wouldn’t they? Even if Kilbride loses, that seat ain’t going red.
@Don The Legend and @CiI - Several years ago two large trees fell over in a ravine behind our property. I better tell the neighborhood kids who play back there about the danger they are in. And to stay off my lawn.
==“What we will call the Red Line World Series if it’s played in Texas?”
The Away Games Series.==
This might be a crazy thought. But if the Cubs and Sox make the World Series, why not play the World Series at U of I’s baseball field? (Even if it’s not MLB regulation size–but then again, neither is 7-inning doubleheader baseball).
Especially considering the current Region 6 2.4% positivity and 1.4% in Champaign County. And all players and staff will be tested several times daily with UIUC’s new rapid COVID-19 tests.
