Waldo Canyon Fire

posted by on 06/27/2012 | 213 comments (leave one of your own)

I took these photos yesterday just before 65 mph wind pushed the Waldo Canyon Fire-that started on Saturday-over the ridge. Over the ridge of the Front Range directly below Pikes Peak.

Which is 20 minutes or so from our house.

And where our children have lived their entire, lucky lives.

We are safe, the wildfire is on the mountains on west side of the interstate. But I’m sure the 32,000 folks that live below the ridge and are now evacuated and/or lost their homes thought they were safe too.  We are on the list for the reverse 911 call and I am trying not think about what I would take with us if we get the call.

The Red Cross is accepting monetary donations for the Southern Coloradans affected by the fire and you can also donate to the Southern Colorado Care And Share, I know they are providing food and drink to the evacuees as well as the 800 or so firefighters that are doing everything they can to save homes and lives.

    Transit TV is pointless. It just adds noise to the environment and doesn’t help riders. Changing the screens to show bus wait times for upcoming transfer points would be very useful, especially given the design of the LA bus system.
