One of approximately 200 hot, dry, shale outcroppings that extend from Huntingdon, Mifflin, Franklin, Perry, Bedford and Fulton counties in south central Pennsylvania through the panhandle of western Maryland, all of eastern West Virginia, and into southwestern Virginia, it consists of hard Devonian shale that breaks off to form talus. Because shale barrens occur mostly on the south facing slopes of hills, surface temperatures can reach as high as 150 degrees Fahrenheit. This heat effectively burns off most seeds that try to sprout, setting the stage for the few plants able to withstand the rigorous conditions, those plants that Keener calls heliophytes which means on sunlight.

I certain there are many exceptions to this dichotomy, but one that has become clearer to me in the last six months around the time I began building Windsor chairs is woodturning. Unlike many hand tool processes, the rhythm of lathe work is strictly enforced by the spinning wood. This remains true regardless of whether the radial velocity is imparted by a tether attached to a foot pedal, or (as with my lathe) some distant coal hungry generator attached to a diminishing series of metallic wires..
Some Evacuate, Some Golf As Volcano Spews AshHawaii Kilauea Volcano Erupts Forcing EvacuationsHAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, HI MAY 09: Stars shine above as a plume rises from the Halemaumau crater, illuminated by glow from the crater’s lava lake, within the Kilauea volcano summit at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on May 9, 2018 in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii. Geological Survey said a recent lowering of the lava lake at the crater ‘has raised the potential for explosive eruptions’ at the volcano. The volcano has spewed lava and high levels of sulfur dioxide gas into communities, leading officials to order 1,700 to evacuate.
