Firefighters are still battling one of the worst wildfires in Colorado history. 346 homes were consumed in the 26-square-mile Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs and it is only 45% contained. 2 lives were lost and 10,000 people remain evacuated.
Photo taken of the Flagstaff fire Saturday night on the way to the Rockies Game. Let it rain!
The Boulder Flagstaff fire is 90% contained. Due to the rugged terrain, firefighters are dousing the flames with buckets of water flown in by helicopter. It has burned 300 acres, but no structures. The Fort Collins High Park Fire burned 259 homes to the ground and one life was lost to the blaze, but it is 100% contained.
When I posted Dancing for Rain, I really did dance, for a couple of minutes anyway. I thought, “Why not?” I was shocked when it started raining. No rain had been forecasted and it was a deluge!
In today’s Daily Camera, Aimee Heckel reported that many local yoga studios held rain meditations for desperately needed moisture. Several local churches held prayer sessions focusing on needed rain. I guess I wasn’t the only one that was surprised and elated by the sudden cloud bursts.
Thunderclouds formed while on our way to Denver and once again, it began to rain. After arriving at Coor’s Field, Danny and I gladly donated some money to the cause. The Rockies matched up to $50,000 Saturday night. Go Rockies!
It was in the 90’s when we entered the stadium so Danny and I ordered a cold beer. Yes I got ID’d and no you can’t see my date of birth.
Hey Jumbotron man! Look at me!
I wondered how much it would cost to advertise Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride up on the scoreboard. Hmmm…
Hot and dedicated fans. 93 degrees in the shade at 6:00 PM.
Chocolate covered strawberries and bananas. Yum!
Oh yah. The game. The Padres throw us out at 1st. Dang!
“What are you doin’? I want to get home and surf in San Diego before practice tomorrow. Dude. Let’s finish this.”
Todd Helton is our last hope. Oh well. Rockies go down fighting and lose 4-8. We’ll get the Padres next time!
Off to check out the Denver scene. A classic~
It’s a roof top party!
While looking back at Coor’s Field, the fireworks began.
Urban Fireworks! One of the few ways Coloradans are going to see them this year.
Have a safe and fun-filled 4th of July! Go America!
No smoke over the Flatirons! A wonderful sight on Sunday night.
