Glad you are safe. Wish everyone were. We live in CA mountains and totally get it. I appreciate your updates.

Thanks. Sometimes I wonder if its too much, but Im definitely living it, even from a distance. It was hard to leave, except that I know our area should be fine and there are responsible people on site to take care of what needs to be done.

16 minutes ago from Inciweb:
"The incident commander reported that an estimated 2,000 additional acres burned on the High Park Fire today. Under red flag warnings, with recorded 84-degree temperatures at Red Mountain, gusts over 30 mph and relative humidity around 5 percent, the fire crossed the Narrows, establishing itself on the north side of Poudre Canyon. Hot shot crews were attempting a direct attack, but due to the intensity and rapid spread of the fire both the hot shot crews and engines involved in structure protection in Glacier View had to pull back for safety reasons."

And from Larimer County Emergency Updates, among other information: "The burn area is located within a watershed that supplies several municipalities. Potential long term impacts from the fire include evacuations, security needs, air quality, and recreation use."
