I just wanted to ask that everyone take a moment to pray or send well wishes to those affected by all the wildfires here in Colorado right now. FI and I are out of harms way, but we know so many couples who are much closer to all the devastation. There are 11 fires right now going on in the state. Thanks to 5 straight days of temps over 100, high winds and very little rain...these fires are burning out of control.
FI's brother lives in Ft Collins close to the High Park fire. They don't have AC and opening windows really isn't an option with all of the smoke and ash. Deanna (Lunarsongbird) said she could see the flames of the Waldo Canyon Fire from her office building yesterday...that's FLAMES, not smoke.
Hundreds of people are being evacuated from their homes. Wildlife is fleeing from the fires into local neighborhoods. Shelters are not accepting evacuees any longer because they are full.
It makes me terribly sad. Not only are our beautiful landscapes being destroyed...these fires will impact out state for years to come. Our tourism industry will be harmed, people are losing their homes, the local wildlife is loosing it's habitat.
I know there are also many other fires going on right now in other states as well. I just wanted to take a minute to pray for all those impacted. Thanks ladies!
