Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Wood straw bales being moved to the deck for netting.

Netting the bales for flying out.

Ready to hook the net on the helicopter.

Helicopter coming in for a load.

Helicopter leaving with a full load.

Final results---something was wrong with my camera but this gives you an idea of what it looks like after the wood straw is spread by the helicopter. The date should be 5/25/2011. I don't know what happened to my camera but I reprogrammed it this morning and it is working OK now..

Getting to the end of your post, I was pondering whether or not the camera would get a picture of the "final straw", but hopefully it will hold up awhile longer!
