+1 on if there's anything that we can do to help out. Estes valley is filled with smoke today, but there is no wind so hopefully they are able to fly some aircraft.

Robbie, thoughts and prayers man. I grew up with this, and know exactly how much watching and waiting to see where the fire goes and what it does sucks.

Again, if there is anything we can do, let us know.

Thanks all for the thoughts and prayers. Just playing the waiting game now. Just got done watching the 9 am report from the guy in charge(I think). He really did not know much at this time. With the smoke and such, they do not have a clear idea of the fire fronts, just where the evac lines are. Winds have layed down and are allowing the Tankers to do there job. People I know have had there houses gone up in flames(still do not know about ours and the rest of Whispering Pines).
Nice pic's of the fire Boulder Cruiser.

Right know, we have no real needs. We have some clothes, not much but enough. We have a roof over our heads and food and family and friends(that wish us well). What more could you ask for while we are waiting for news.
It could be a day or more(after the fire is out or under control) before we know more. They will not let any one in the area until they access the damage(so they say) to houses and where the fire started.
Thanks again for the well wishing.
