Colorado Burning

I hope all in Buff Nation are staying clear of the score of fires raging through the state.  The sight of the Flastaff Fire poking its hellish nose over the Flatirons Tuesday evening was one of the most unsettling images I've seen in quite a while.
Luckily, Boulder was spared the horror of a wildfire spilling down the mountain, and into populated areas.   Colorado Springs wasn't so lucky, and the scenes from the Waldo Canyon Fire defy description. 

All told there have been more than a dozen wildfires started this month, affecting all corners of the state.  My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by all the fires.  THANK YOU (!!!!!) to all the firefighters throughout the region who continue to put their lives on the line to protect our homes and communities.  If you'd like to help the victims of the fires, please check out
