The Berm controversy

Yep its Berm.  I was discussing this with some coworkers and we had a collective strike of genius and looked on Wikipedia.  Duh. 

It quotes “A berm is a level space, shelf, or raised barrier separating two areas. Berm originates in the Middle Dutch and German berme and came into usage in English via French.”

So hence forth, ‘mounds’ will revert to the proper term of ‘berms’ now that I know how to correctly spell it. 

And FYI – I left a voicemail on Monday for the Forest Service about those fire roads, and today is Thursday.  Still no call back.  I repeated my phone number and name 3 times on the call too, speaking nice and slow and clear, so I really don’t think that is the problem.  Maybe they are out on vacation though.  I’ll try back soon.
