Oak Harbor., WOW! I used to live there years ago while stationed at VAQ-129. Lived off of Lato Dr. thanks for the memories. Just out of curiosity how long have you lived there? Wondering if some of the old stomping grounds are still up and running.

Man, I hate burn bans...this is the first year in recent memory we haven't had one...on the other hand, it can't seem to stop raining (not complaining). I always fired it up with a hose handy just in case...

Update: It has been raining here on and off for the last few days. I don't expect the ban to be enforced or remain much longer.

For those of you that suggested throwing caution to the wind and crank up the Weber; well I will not admit to breaking any laws, but my wife was not disappointed. We did have burgers and wings for the Seahawks pre-season game.

Been here since my Dad got stationed here in '83. I joined in late '92 and shipped in '93. Ended up coming back after my first hitch and been here since. I have seen a lot of changes over the years. I know right where Lato is, it is just around the corner and down the street from me.

When were you here?

I agree with the Broken Arrow dude, fire it up but have the ability to put out a fire handy and let her rip! My back yard in Collinsville has water standing in it this summer, 3 1/2 inches of rain so far this month, almost a moat if you will. Last two summers where burn banned for months on end, I never slowed down on the Q.

I guess I just get ahead of myself and don't think when it comes to something interrupting my grillin time.

When grills are outlawed, only outlaws will have grills?

Just realized that I drove through Jonesboro a few months ago driving to Temple. Next time I'll stock up on beer and plan to pass through around lunch time.

I don't condone breaking the law, but I just may have to become a renegade and fire up the Weber tonight anyways. Wife wants some burgers and wangs for the football game tonight.

Oh, I almost forgot....GO HAWKS!

DO IT ANYWAY!

seriously though...do it anyway. get all rage against the machine on the chit too if needed.

and honestly this makes no sense - it's been raining every afternoon/evening all summer long. i'm sure it has been down there too - you can't be more than about 10 miles south of me **** EDIT*** got confused - thought Talonbrew posted this, but it's been raining every dang day in Denver too!

That brings back memories. Pete's is gone. Been replaced 4 times now and the road is now one way. I saw the old owners son a few weeks back, Miguel is all grown up.

Lots of other stuff has changed too. ennens is gone, we got a Walmart, Albertsons, and home depot too.

I guess the three days of rain has worked!

No more ban for recreational fires to include bbq's!
