1. It's really awful!

I'm in Broomfield and the smoke plume was massive.

6. It even hit Downtown Denver!

We're getting a light mist of rain this morning. It's really helped.

2. And here is mine--15 miles away, protected only by the presence of Horsetooth Reservoir

The smoke was so thick you could chew it yesterday. I hate wasting any N95 masks, but it was necessary to walk the pup (and boy did I feel bad for her).

BTW, all the black areas are fire-destroyed:

4. You're live in the same place as a good friend of mine.

Smoke was super bad here too yesterday. I stayed inside.

3. A new fire broke out on Saturday in Boulder County.

Burned 7,000 acres in 8 hours.

Our planet is on fire.

9. Is there any hope of it fizzling out before it reaches more populated areas - given its less forest

and more open prairie east of the mountains? eg a lot fewer trees?

10. I have friends all along the Front Range.

I hope they are all safe.

Used to live in Boulder, myself.

13. Oh wow. We were in southern and central part of CO last week and didn't know about the fires.

I thought the air was a bit hazy but didn't know why. 😳

Prayers to all the firefighters and people being affected by this. 🙏
