Now here is sight that in the middle of summer can really get a persons heart going. Hell, even in the fall as dry as it a sight like this makes you worry. The problem is it is not a fire. they are blasting at the Sarpy Mine. Whenever you see a black cloud in that direction in the summer you have to wait and see if it is a fire or the mine blasting. Usually you know it's the mine because of the time they blast but sometimes they change their schedule and take a person by surprise. Taken 11/2/2007.
