New York State hasn't seen any rain in several weeks, and therefore everything is bone dry. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has issued a High Fire Alert for the Adirondacks. Please read the DEC's webpage on Fire Safety Outdoors. Also, please be aware that it is now illegal to transport firewood in New York State unless it has been treated against pests, and it is illegal to transport untreated firewood less than 50 miles from its source.
Hat tip Adirondack Base Camp.
