Im horrible with keeping journals, but I'll give this a spin

So, for those who haven't watched the news: I have a major fire burning in my hometown of Colorado Springs, the Waldo Canyon Fire. It has been for a week now and just last night, the fire claimed 1 life, and over the week has claimed 347 homes, and the Flying W Ranch. The fire went from a few hundred acres to 16,500 acres, thanks to the embers of the fire having a 65% of starting new fires. But we have 15% containment, so Im hopeful that this can go out completely,with all the help that has been pouring in to help us

I actually saw that on the news this morning. Apparently, it's one of the worst fires ever in the US. Damn, sucks it happened in your hometown. I wish I could lend you (or better yet, give you) some (all) of our rain.

Hey HakkaisRilan, I know what you mean. I am currently in Utah and there is at least 6 fires goin on right now. last evening it was "raining" ash.. It smells like a camp fire outside and makes eveything fell much more warm than what it really is.

So, an update on the fire! We have an estimated 30% containment, with 17,073 acres have burned! Things are looking up, and hopefully we get more rain and high humidity to help keep the fire where its at

So, we have 98% containment in our fire. And I found out after waking at 3:45 to 4:25 my American:Mountain morning time, and hitting an e.r., is that I have an outer ear canal infection after dealing with it for four hours

Well, our Waldo Canyon Fire is contained 100%, but it's not out yet. I think that's a good thing
