#BlackForestFire – bad couple of days

panpic1

That’s a backyard view of Colorado’s most devastating wildfire in it’s entire state history. I can’t say that it’s an honor to be part of it – because it’s not. It’s terrifying and smokey. Editing Book 2 has come to a standstill, especially considering my valuables, other than my children, husband, dog shadow, and 2 favorite Coach purses are on standby just in case my subdivision (Meridian Ranch) gets a mandatory call to evacuate. We’re on pre-evac, which means be ready to leave in a moment’s notice. It’s harrowing, to say the least.

That’s from Day 1 on Tuesday 6/11/13. The panoramic picture above is of yesterday, and it’s cleared even more today, but we’re still at 0% containment. The fires are moving north of us, and my heart goes out to those families, but can’t help but let out a sigh of relief at the same time.

I am humbled by the generosity my fellow neighbors and local friends have shown us. I will forever be grateful.
