Glad you got some of the rain that you needed, and super on the maples! It'll be interesting to see how the Acer Freemanii works out. Poison ivy can hide until it reaches a goodly size. Like you, I found one several days ago. This morning, I discovered a fair-sized green briar in the center of one of our nine-barks.

I just learned that a neighbor down the street has a pellet stove in one corner of his basement. His exhaust pipe is about 10 feet long, traversing over laid stone & pebbles.

I wonder why his exhaust is so long? The only things I can think of is his upper floors overhand the basement or he has a deck/porch over where it comes out of his house.

He does have a huge, multi-level deck. Perhaps I just didn't recall that most of the 10' extended above the deck? He (and the neighbor on one side) have paved over (with rocks/deck/concrete) so much of their lots that there is nowhere for runoff except into the small lake behind their houses. They contribute 'way too much runoff. It is bad enough for the flooding situation that our houses and drives contribute so much runoff without deliberately making our footprints larger. *sigh*
