    That's a hell of a scene to come back to. This has been a catastrophic year for natural disasters. Fires, flooding, droughts, hurricanes, tornados....you name it. So much grief brought to so many people.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    OK, thanks, That was what I thought it was as it just popped up on InciWeb yesterday. Ptarmigan Fire. 40 Acres thus far. Luckily, if a large response is needed, Dillon Reservoir is nearby for water air drops . Sure hope it gets contained quickly with the large population in that area. There's a lot of dead trees out there where it's burning.

    I'm fairly familiar with the area. We were there for a family wedding some years ago, and a bike club trip a couple years later as well. In fact we are at the Log Cabin Restaurant (been there many times - excellent breakfast restaurant!), went riding and when we came back the gas station next door had just exploded! Beautiful area to live in and for all sorts of recreation. I hope you remain unaffected by this one.

    Thank you for your concern and good wishes. Crews have been working non-stop dropping fire retardant and water from the reservoir and it is raining right now!
