My Brother-in-law, Sister and I watched the fire grow yesterday afternoon as we drove east and south out of RMNP. It was pretty surreal to watch. I am glad to hear that most people are ok, and that no one has lost their lives as a result, and as of this posting.

Wow, we just can't escape the freaking witch. See, another blast of flaming death from the mouth of Beth from Tulsa. She has no mercy, especially for the people of Colorado.

My Brother lives up on Magnolia Rd. It took a while but his wife told me they were ok last night. I was very intense waiting to find out though.

We were driving west on 120th headed home and right at the light at Pecos my son said he saw a "jet pack" in the sky by the mountains and we saw a little trail of smoke. Like what the planes in air shows leave behind when they fly. Then it got darker and darker and within 5 minutes the entire west skyline was covered in black smoke and more was rolling up. We could see the cloud of smkoe getting taller and wider. By the time we got to Church Ranch & Wads it looked like something had crashed and blew up on the side of the mountain! We live off 93rd & Wads and the smoke has already come over half the sky in our neighborhood now! This was at about 10:30 this morning!
VERY INTERESTING. I wonder how long it will be before this post disappears. I'm surprised there isn't ANY word on the cause of the fire. The officials all have to get their story straight before they tell us what they want us to hear.

I concur. Their hiding in sight. "let ME live free and let THEM pay for it" My dollar can only stretch so far. But don't worry people,,, I'll just spend 4x more to get my vehicle tags renewed every year so that your kids can get college that I was denied and not have to carry a free lunch card. I can't afford my own lunch thanks.........
What frightens me even more than fire is the hatred in some of these posts.

They reported this morning that some car hit a propane tank and started the fire. Just makes your sphincter tingle doesn't it.

Hey, Channel 13! The Air Tanker Base Manager you interviewed at Rocky Mountain Metro Airport is Mark Michelsen, not Matt Michaelsen. He does a great job explaining air tankers, flight safety, and how fire retardant works.

If this fire was to start is better this year because next year the tea party/republican people will have ended deficit spending there by drying any emergency monies. If 60 and 61 referendums pass in Colorado all state money will be gone. Then only mother nature will be able to extinguish any major fires.

Yeah, that is right, we are wasting too much money telling people to evacuate their home, let alone the amount of money we are going to waste on fighting the fires. Everyone should just go home and stop all this wasteful spending, RIGHT!!
