Fall continues dry and hot with little to no rain. What ground crops the Xanadu area has been able to irrigate well enough to produce vegetables has been scanty, so it's looking more and more like the Weyr will be trading or foraging for some food this winter.
The burned area that the sweeps checked apparently is still producing smoke and although it has been written off when nothing was originally found, there's some uneasiness among the local folks. With early morning ground fog hiding any sign of smoke, a curious Junior Weyrwoman, Weyrsecond and Weyrleader decided to have another look. And lucky they did, for at least two hot spots were found and eliminated.
But did they find them all? See the log.
