The Fires Continue

WE ARE SAFE.  Colorado is still on fire, but I am safe.  The fires are in the mountains and are on the Western Slope.  The North Denver Metro area, where we live is fine.  However, the latest on the Pine Gulch fire is NOT good news.  It has grown and has now burned over 73,381 acres, making it now the 5th largest fire in Colorado’s recorded history.  And it is still only 7% contained.

I wish there was a way we could have this blood red sky without the devastation though.

      1. In 2018 the Paradise fire burned down the ENTIRE town of Paradise, CA. The skies here were smoky and hazy, and Paradise is nearly 100 miles away! And when we had to evacuate in 2017, the smoke from our town could be seen and smelled over 100 mi. away. Smoke really travels far.
