    [QUOTE=2milehighJet;4501604]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.[/QUOTE]

    Also I think the Tebowites are going to blame this on all on the Broncos for trading Tebow.

    My friends live in Northern Colorado, and when I have spoken to them in the last week they've said that the sky is orange. Joke all you want, but houses up there are being destroyed, and families are being put in awful situations.

    Just FYI.

    Thoughts out to all those affected out in Colorado.

    We had some of the worst wildfires in TX history just last September. One near Austin was the worst, with about 1700 homes being destroyed and tens of thousands of acres burned. Neighborhoods were just gone.

    It was horrible with other fires on the other side of Austin and several huge ones over by Houston, all at the same time. So many people lost their homes and businesses, and it has to be such a helpless feeling. So good luck to CO folks and hope for rain.

    It's how we deal with tragedy. We are emotionally immature and scared to death of our own inevitable mortality.

    I agree. I used to work on a team treating severely mentally ill adults whose lives you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy. A few them died during the time I worked there. If you had sat in on one of our staff meeting you might have thought were the most heartless sobs you'd ever met. But using black humor helped us deal with a job that paid 28K (and several co-workers had master'), psychologically felt like emptying a leaking rowboat with a shot glass and could be physically dangerous.

    That said, how come Boston never gets wild fires? :confused:

    Are you quoting me from one of your many "Guess who just died" threads?

    Side note, I've got friends and family in CO. Haven't heard anything yet from them but that definitely looks like a sh!tty situation.
