Radio.. Err.. Bloggy Silence

I apologize for neglecting my little blog. The second wild fire here in CO (in Loveland) directly affected My Kiwi & My Missy (brother and sister in law). They were evacuated on Sunday (currently staying with us) and the fire is at 20% containment.

There have been blessings all around including being able to pull resources from the Four Mile Canyon Fire in Boulder. We had slurry bombers, firefighters, personnel and helicopters that were dispatched to us immediately. As a matter of fact, a Ranger Pal of Missy's told her that, had it not been for the insanely quick response, they would've lost their home.

This was taken a few hours after the mandatory evac on Sunday at the Command Center:

The good news is, as of this moment, the fire is moving away from homes and all but two have been spared. Keeping everyone involved in our prayers..

Oh, did I mention Missy was on the news? CHECK IT OUT

I forgot that ya'll lived over in that area. I hope all of you and yours are safe and the fire hazards go away soon, with winter! We live up near Greeley.

Hope you and your family all stay safe.

Oh, btw, I got my micro-dermabrasion kit in today.

Yikes! Praying that the fires are contained soon!

(wildfires and being evacuated are scary things... my family went through it a few years ago)

Hope that all is back to normal for you and yours soon!
