*** first posted 6/13/13. with new totals, i’ve updated some information.
i’ve posted on FB about the wild fire we are watching. thought i’d share some pics.
this was yesterday and was a view from our neighborhood.
looks much closer than it really is.
i felt like that scene in Pearl Harbor when the Japanese flew over so close. i played Kate Beckinsale’s character.
Care and Share is a great organization if anyone wants to help southern Colorado. ***UPDATE: the Black Forest fire has burned around 15,000 acres, 483 houses are total loses (that number could go up), and two fatalities. the fire is now 55% contained.*** this fire is one of four burning in Colorado. three are in southern Colorado. ***UPDATE: several of the other fires have or are being contained.***
hug your loved ones. these kinds of disasters are scary, and it’s obvious what is most precious.
