Fire on the Mountain

Last night we went down to see Farmer Todd's newborn kid goat. After a while the kids (human) all ran off to play, and minutes later they came running back to tell us about the big fire. Sure enough there was a big billowing fire up at one of the gas drilling rigs we can see from the house. Apparently when they get done drilling a well they have to burn off some of the gas for some reason. They call it flaring.

Farmer Todd and I walked over there this morning and here is what we saw. The drilling rig in the foreground of the top photo is from a different well than the one that is being flared.

Amazing! We have a place in Meshoppen not far from P&G. We have had no drilling around us yet, but are anticipating that we will have so in the next few years.
