The wind is really fanning the hotspots! Only one chopper dropping water right now seems a little over optimistic!

This is turning out to be one crazy summer. One of our major clients is in the Springs, and that site is now evac'd and being threatened. If that one in Boulder goes, we may have multiple client sites at risk. Just nuts. I feel bad for those that have lost their homes. My home was hit by a tornado, and it's a horrible feeling to be displaced. Though, if you make it out healthy, that's really all that matters.

I agree that they may be being overly optimistic.... we'll see how it goes today. right now news shows it hasn't grown.

Now the CS fire is just tragic. Holy cow..

Sean, we were commuting via MM. No time for more than a quick pass through on the normal daily route.

Nice view of the blaze moving closer to the building. Yikes.

riding through marshall is definitely not a bad commute. almost as good as mine.

I drove up from Pueblo yesterday and was blow away by how close that fire was to I25. That was before the wind and homes that were lost. This is pretty scarry. I am praying for rain.
