And then there are the fires burning in Colorado and New Mexico. Dear family friends who live near Colorado Springs were evacuated today. The fire is near the ridge line right behind their house. One of my best customers at Paper and Present lives in Fort Collins. I haven't heard back from her recently, so I hope she is OK and has managed to locate a friend of hers who lived in one of the worst-hit areas.
And tonight we have our own fire burning just 10 miles from our house. It was started by lightning this afternoon and now is at 500 acres and growing rapidly. They have already evacuated one area, and with all the fires burning in the state I am sure the resources are stretched thin right now. We are all praying for rain, but the forecast shows nothing but sun and high temperatures.
I hope to be back soon with better news.
