Sad day - a huge wildfire is raging in the mountains where we live.  Almost 45,000 acres have burned, many homes have been destroyed and who knows what the poor woodland creatures are going through up there.  Our whole town is enveloped in smoke and despite the 600+ fire fighters battling the blaze, it is still only 5% contained.  My little family is safe - we live a few miles into town, in a valley basically, and the fire would not have enough material to burn to get to us - but we know people who have had to evacuate their homes.  Can you imagine?  It's just awful.  My heart goes out to the people and animals affected by this awful mess. 

Sorry to be a Debby Downer tonight guys.  Just have to pay respect to what's going on in my little corner of the world.  So sad.

  1. Hope things are cooling off up there/over there...wherever the hell you are in Colorado! That is a dreadful feeling seeing that house burned up like that!

    1. It is awful! It's still only 10% contained, so sad :/ It's just so darn dry here. Thank you for the positive thoughts, I'll keep ya posted!
