Woodsmoke in August?

As I was walking with Jeb the Wonder Dog tonight, I noticed a smell much more closely associated with January or February than with August: wood smoke. The temperature the last few nights has dipped into the 60s. Apparently, this is low enough to prompt at least some people -- I would say more than one, based on the pervasiveness of the smell -- to fire up the fireplace. To each his own, I say, but I doubt the Chez Wolves firepit will be in business anytime soon. Unless I need an excuse to drink beer, which seems an unlikely scenario, given that football season is almost upon us. But you never know.
