    Fire in Colorado Springs - Waldo Canyon Fire

    The fire started pretty close to my place, 4 miles or so. Since then it has been spreading more North of me and I have not had to evacuate. It has been a really bad night with lots of house being burned to the ground.

    Here are a few quick shots from my place from earlier today.

    It has been, really weird lighting. That is all smoke, there is hardly a cloud in the sky.

    Shoot that is crazy. I am glad you didn't have to evacuate. Your collection would be a serious issue to move if the fire came your direction.

    Our state is burning. ;c

    Seriously, fires all over the place. What is it right now? 8 fires across Colorado? I can't even believe that one in Estes Park started as a house fire and proceeded to burn down 21 houses. I wonder if it wasn't at least partially because their local firefighters were off fighting other fires around the state. Sad stuff for sure. We've had two pretty good rain storms the last couple days, though, which I'm sure helped with the High Park fire at least, don't know if you guys got the rain down south too. Hope so. With that scenery and the smoke, I'd be outside ALL DAY shooting pictures, lol. I already mentioned it, but in worst case scenario, don't even hesitate to contact me if I can help at all.

    G'luck, may it steer clear of you.

    Wow thats crazy! We've had a few fires like that, but the shroom clouds keep going for months on end. Usually it's because they can't reach the fire by foot so it continues all summer.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
