My folks are out there right now. I need to call them to make sure they're ok.

Doesn't look it gets better before it gets worse. Really hot and dry out here. Big fires up there and in New Mexico.

Just flew in from Colorado a couple of days ago (visiting friends in Boulder). You could see the smoky haze from their house. Evidently, at its peak, my friends could see the black clouds billowing from the fires.

Beautiful state -- what a shame...

I'm in Colorado Springs and the fire is still raging. Our town is "ok" but the fire is running along the hillside towards Palmer Lake, Larkspur, and the Woodland Park area. The news isn't offering much in the way of up to the minute information but the community is doing their best to take care of those forced from their homes. The scene here is really wild. Seems like the Air Force Academy, northeast side of the Springs, is safe and the cadets are ok to return to their housing. See what happens.

Pretty sure my Dad's house was destroyed. Sucks.
