    I smell smoke..... not cool.

    I've been a hermit all morning and just went outside. It's boulder windy down here in the rock and smells like smoke, super hazy to the west. Nothing on 9News or Fox31 interweb sites. Nothing on the inciweb.org either.

    Most of the smoke is from other states.

    Just heard that the average acreage burned at this time of the year is 26,000 and we are currently at only 3,200... so, we are doing good. FYI we were at 50,000 acres at this time last year because of the Springs. Southern CO may not be so lucky if monsoon season is late.

    Major fire in Royal Gorge. "Multiple" fires on either side of C470 and University.

    Interesting thing, I was doing some needed mitigataion on my new place and Jeff Co is having a slash collection next weekend in the Conifer area. Coal Creek Canyon in 2 weekends. Much cheaper than the alternatives.

    Not sure if that is a good thing or the big just wait for it to all go at once situation.

    That fire is at the corner of Shoop,83, and Black Forest rd. so it is right at his house. He did say he's safe with his family.

    That's good to hear!
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.
