Now that's just silly.
Scenic Colorado Springs.
I have no words.
Well ... holy shit snacks.
^ Oh dear. Do you live near there, Davros? I hope you and yours haven't lost anything. And I hope they get those fires under control...
anyhoo, this is me standing on home plate in the remnants of Rosenblatt Stadium (to be demolished in a couple of weeks):
The fires are over 50 miles away from me
^ Oh. That's good news. I hope they don't get any closer...are they getting them under control in any way?
A friend of mine has a house about 2 miles away from the fire. At least it was that far last time I talked to him.
Hoping it stay far from you too Davros.
Those pics brought back some not so pleasant memories of the San Bernardino, CA fire in (iirc) 1980. We had moved across the valley, but were selling our house on contract. It was on the last street up the base of the mountain where the fire burned through. Somehow, our house with a crushed rock roof, and three or four others with tile roofs survived. Pretty much everything else for a good half mile down the mountain was gone with just a few exceptions.
Hot dry winds have not been helping the situation here. But a whole lot of city would have to go up before they got close to my house.
Here is what's going on west of Boulder
Things are getting strange
I have family who live in Colorado Springs, but they're all back in Minnesota ATM. My cousin's house is right in the burn area and she had no idea if it's still there. And FWIW, I can see the smoke from here.
I see this picture. My brain hears the "dun dun!" played on an organ.
^ Actually the technical term is Doink-Doink.
I think there's a Xenomorph in my house, and I'm pretty sure it's using the vents to get around.
I guess they figure any kind of liquid might help dampen things a bit?
You've got kind of an Anthony Bourdain thing goin' on in this photo.
It's weird, people have been telling me that since I started to go really grey about four years ago. I guess it's true.
Not to make light of a bad situation...
But I'd say the folks there are both hot and bothered, so anything goes.
If your cooking and culinary skills are even remotely as good as Anthony's then you're a quadruple threat:
1. Good writer
2. Adorably snarky
3. Badass car
