Hey girls... Colorado could really use some of your positive juju /karma/ thoughts/ prayers right now. And some slow, drenching rain storms.
I'm sure none of you have seen this in the news, but about 11,000 people have been evacuated in my area due to a massive wildfire that started yesterday and blew up to 2500 acres in about 12 hours.
Personally, we are okay for now since the fire would have to burn through a good chunk of Colorado Springs and the entire Air Force Academy and jump I-25 to get to our house. But the smoke is horrible. My eyes are burning like helll and sinuses are a mess. Oh, and it's going to be windy and 100 degrees most of the week.
The scary thing.. this might be the work of a sick arsonist. The neighboring county has had more than 20 small fires set in about the past week. We are in the midst of a terrible, terrible drought and this place is a tinderbox.
