    I believe one of our Hampur friends Mile High Jet is from Colorado. Maybe Boulder. I hope he is safe, as well as everyone out there.

    George Carlin said as humans we're just fleas on the back of this planet. Man has spent ten thousand years trying to get a leg up on nature. I get why we do it. I'm just not sure it'd a good thing for us to win. We're smart but I don't think smarter than the planet. Every so often nature does its thing in a big way. It's humbling and something to see.

    Not. Large fires result from conditions suitable to large fires. What starts it is almost inconsequential--lightening, cigarette, sparks ffrom train wheels, etc. But I'll grant your point that cigarette butts surely don't help. There are prolly more cigarette butts flicked in China than anywhere. But few fires, prolly cuz the landscape has already been foraged of potential fuel.

    Thanks Timmy, I'm safe. We do have one burning about 45 minutes away near Leadville called treasure fire about 400 acres, fortunately it's near the tree line high alpine tundra which slowed the progress. Saw the smoke on Saturday afternoon, real scary knowing how dry it is and no rain relief in sight.

    The trees are dead due to the pine beetle, which will accelerate the fires. Plus it's been super windy which is the firefighters nightmare. Another sprung up outside Boulder about 4 pm due to lightning. Needless to say all fireworks have been cancelled. We need some serious rain.
