Jeff called me today and filled me in that there was still a good buffer zone before Monte and Janine's but the fire was still heading North. The Air Force Academy was closed and evacuated last night and it is just roughly ten miles to Monte and Janine's house ( I thought it was closer as I can see the A F Cathedral and Monte's house both from I-25. Jeff said This was a "Real Nasty Fire" but he and Cindy were probably OK where they live unless the winds change. It is a horrible situation out there and the worst I have ever seen personally. Linda and I just got back home Monday from Colorado and planned to go to Woodie Boogie which was cancelled because of the High Park Fire which last I heard has burned roughly 260 homes and and 70,000 acres, caused by Lightening, another fire just behind Pikes Peak on Colorado 24 at Lake George called the Springer fire, caused by stupidity, don't know how they are doing with it now. Now one in the Boulder area again, Damn it is burning up Colorado and it is just hard to accept seeing so many family's out of their homes and all belongings gone. Just prey for rain and hope for stopping the fires. I did hear tonight that this worst fire in Colorado Springs is suspicious as to arson. Which makes it worse to think with all the warnings we have heard while out there for the last couple weeks, that there are some really sick people to think this as a prank or just malicious terrorism. WELL, it just got out of hand
It's just more than stupidity here this is way worse.
Sorry for venting but This is where I want to live and retire someday soon and It is just a shame to hear that it was set on fire on purpose (ABC News tonight). Keep your fingers crossed and prey for rain. These are good people in harms way.

Saw a facebook post from Monte---as of 8 hours ago--as he says--'the fort is still standing!'

I sure do hope that is the same message we get each day into the future for them...

Fire is on the southwest corner of the Air Force Academy and the A F Chapel is two miles south from Monte's house They were ordered to evacuate as was on Monte's FB But The fire according to the Weather Chanel as of this morning they have the fire 45% contained so keep'em in your prayers and good thoughts I think it's working Just pray for that northerly wind to stop. That is what is driving the fire to him.
