Fire Season Has Begun.
Here in Southwest Florida, according to the Florida Earthways Path, we have the following Seasons:
Fire Season, which runs from about mid-February to mid-April.
Rainy Season, which runs from mid-April to mid-August.
Hurricane Season, which runs from mid-August to mid-November, and,
Dry Season, which runs from mid-November to mid-February.
Please note, The Florida Earthways Path’s Hurricane Season, is different from the one established by the various official agencies. That runs from June 1 to November 1. Also, please note that these The Florida Earthways Path Seasons, do not coincide with the typical Seasons of Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall, or of the Holidays of Imbolc, Beltaine, Lammas, or Mabon.
And how do we know that Fire Season has started? Well for one thing, it is mid-February. And, there is something on Fire and you can smell it in the air. Also, most of the vegetation is totally dried up tan-dun-yellow- and the wind has been relentless.

Your fire season is our mud season!
Glad you found me, here. Ah yes, I remember mud season! I remember when mud would form Up North, and as people would trod through it, their shoeprints would form those scooches and sometimes those would freeze overnight. We don’t really have mud here in Southwest Florida because we have such sandy soil. I haven’t seen mud in many, many years.
