it's getting smokey here in the fort

had a fire burning up poudre canyon for a couple of days and the winds are shifting. i'm worried we're in for a busy fire season.

2. we're not in much danger from the fire

but it's up to 5,000 acres now and the winds are picking up. no evacuations yet, but people are on notice.

smoke's heavier down here today, too.

3. I know someone who has a home in Red Feather Lakes.

Can't quite figure out from the Post article if that area's in any danger from the fires. Keeping my fingers crossed for you and everyone who's affected in my home state of Colorado!

Best.

4. i'm having a tough time telling, too

but, from what i can gather (and google maps) red feather seems to be ok, the fire seems to be moving down the canyon. it was so hazy last night and i could see the light of the fire from town. spooky.
