We evac'd safely - but are sorta sitting on pins and needles. I was repacking the front axle on my '40, so I could not take it with me when we bailed. Oh, well. Thanks for the offers of help!

Now at 360 homes lost and still counting. I'm just west of BF under pre-evac and just hoping they can hold the line at hwy 83 on the fire's west side...

At least no one hurt or killed so far in this one.

Dang....Fingers crossed folks

Is it just me or does it seem stupid, yeah stupid, that the minute they get a report of a fire like this that the don't immediately fire up a couple tankers etc to go try to douse the thing? If I understand it correctly the fire started Tuesday early afternoon but it wasn't until Wednesday late morning, almost noon, before they started air support. WTF? If you catch it when it is small, maybe one or two passes by those big boys and it is out, or at least somewhat beaten down.

I'm pretty sure the tankers were in Colorado ready to go...We were at Ft Logan yesterday for soccer and it was pretty much constant tanker flybys heading to and from the fire....

Just heard on Nightly news that 2 bodies have been found in burn area. This one now worse than the Waldo Canyon fire. How much more can this State take.
