my ears were burning, no pun intended and I thought I would help Becky out. As of now there are 8 wildfires burning in Colorado and 5 on, what we call the front range. That is where the mountains slope down to the plains. We are about 40 miles east of the High Park Fire and north of the new really bad one burning in Colo. Springs about 90 miles. The new one is terrible and they evacuated 11,000 people from an entire town. My mom and stepdad are back with us, but the fire took a really bad turn on Saturday and we have two friends who both lost their mountain cabins. They at least have homes to live in. My parents home is still there, thankfully. I didn't want to bore the TQSers any more on the blog with the details. The High Park fire has burned over 80,000 acres and got 250 homes. Pretty bad. Thank you dear TQS friends of your concern and thoughts. It is greatly appreciated.
