We just had a soccer game at Parker/Arapahoe Storm fields.....it's amazing how well you can see it from there...... That fire is really growing.

Ya Steve H is very close to the fire I was at his house back in March when I picked up his van I bought. I hope he is allright too. I am sure he has been evacuated.

We are in the Springs all summer, the smoke cloud gave me the willies after last years blaze. We are hearing reports of 8 homes burned today. Its calm tonight, tomorrow should be just as hot without the wind.

That info is soooo 22 minutes ago. Mandatory evacuation are now in place. Looks like it crossed Meridian. Having lost everything to a house fire... My .02, grab your pictures, everything else is truly replaceable

Yeah, we have a family Go bag ready to roll, its far from where we are by the Garden of the Gods. Last years Waldo Canyon fire taught us to be ready and what to pack. We have a big ruck sack filled with clothes, backup hard drives, digital pics, meds, and enough kit to crash with friends for up to a week or two. If we have extra time, then we will grab other valuables that are strung though out the house. We have made a list in priority of what we should grab first given extra time. Last year taught us that when slurry bombers are just over your head, your head isn't always thinking clearly. ;) Lists should help us stay focused and move quickly.

Thoughts and prayers to our Cruiser breathren down south...

Unfortunately, this is turning into an annual event on the Front Range.
