It been burning 40 days now and is only 55% contained. 17000 acres. Smoke is visible from the house sometimes. Today one started to the west of us around Mancos CO. Its grown to 300 acres since 4:30pm. Smoke visible this evening. Looks like poor air quality now regardless of wind direction:bang head: We need some rain.

So they named the fire near Mancos the Weber Fire its at 2500+ acres now. A 3rd fire started "Stateline Fire" has closed HWY 550 just north of the NM boarder.

We are dry down here.

We had one pop up between Woodland Park and C. Springs...the Waldo Canyon fire. Started around mid-day today and is at 2000 acres already.

According to the local authorities, we have also had to deal with a possible arsonist working our area the last few days. I think the last count was ~20 fires set...luckily they were caught early. I'll be curious to see what caused the Waldo fire.

They have officially concluded that the Weber Fire was started by man. It grown to 6000 acres in 24hrs. We are pretty much stuck in smoke now until they get things under control. Only wind blowing south can clear us out.
