Colorado’s Burning

June 28, 2012

I suppose it’s time to acknowledge that I’m living in a state that’s all aflame.

Some states have hurricanes, some have earthquakes, and Colorado, well it has fires.  And while I’ve lived  in Colorado for 22 years and am totally used to fire season, what’s happening right now is something entirely different.

Two weeks ago, I walked outside to go to work and there was no ignoring the fact that there was a bad fire nearby.  The air was hazy and smell was overwhelming.  Little did I know there were several other fires burning and now I think there’s somewhere around 15 fires in Colorado.  Some are worse than others, but they’re all heartbreaking.  I don’t like to think that any of my home state is being destroyed.

Natural disasters are so frustrating because there’s really nothing you can do to stop them from coming.  Even if you really want to.  I’m just crossing my fingers that no new fires start and that the ones that are blazing now get taken care of as soon as possible.  And feeling really really lucky that I don’t know anyone who’s in danger right now.

(Totally did not take this picture, by the way!)
