It's no secret that Colorado's on fire. I was amazed how much crud was on my car yesterday. So far, we haven't had any fires in my neck of the woods. The crud is coming from pretty far away.
The way these crowning fires are moving, the fact that I live next to a river is prooving o be little comfort. It reminds me of the summer ten years ago. Back then I lived in Estes Park. One night there was so much smoke from fires that it looked like a thick fog. My indoor smoke detector actually went off. One of the tanker planes crashed only a few blocks from where I lived.
