I honestly thought they were Thunderheads
My friends who have asthma are all complaining about how the air quality is totally wiping them out.
When we first moved to Colorado Springs, we moved up to the Rockrimmon area. The houses in that neighborhood are now being evacuated. My friends who have parents out there are posting to facebook that their parents are coming to live with them for the next couple of days.
The World Famous Flying W Ranch has burned down. We went there a few years back. They had metal plates. They told you to hold the plate under the applesauce rather than under the brisket or the beans (so you wouldn’t burn your hand). They prayed a nice non-denomonational prayer before we ate and then after dinner we sang songs.
When I left work today, I looked northwest and thought, for a second, “A thunderstorm is coming!” but it was instead a wall of smoke that filled the horizon.
