Colorado is blowing up right now with fires. Most recent one started today here in Colorado Springs. No snow this winter, minimal rain to this point, high winds all spring long, record high temps - hit a record 100 today, and 3 days earlier this week with record highs. It is so dry out that I am afraid to fart outside. Waldo Canyon Fire - this is the one here in CS that started today. About 25 miles from my place, in a popular hiking canyon. Estes Park Fire = started today, but is contained High Park Fire - over 75,000 acres and 250+ homes so far. Little containment. Springer Fire - outside Colo Springs, by 11 Mile Reservoir. 1300+ acres. And there are more smaller ones around the state. No rain in site, more record temps the next 3-5 days. Not looking good, it's only mid June.
