The news is FULL of stories of houses, schools, etc. burning down. Pretty sad. My heart goes out to anybody affected by the fires.
I was up in Pagosa Springs last week, and we could see lots of smoke from a fire that locals said had been burning since May 15th. You do have lots of fires in CO. I'm in New Mexico, and we've had one burning also. I'm not at all near that, but I just hate wildfires because of the destruction to wildlife and in the case of Colorado, so many homes. Very tragic.
