• I broke my blog for a couple hours on Thursday. After freaking the frak out, I had the good sense to remember I was married to a geek. You don’t know how to code, Deb! Step away from the editor! Also stop reading articles on building a better blog. It’s FINE. Jeez.
• I am happy to report I survived my first mammogram. It was not as bad as I expected. Hopefully this concludes our news coverage into the Lady Garden and Adjacent Areas.
• There is a huge fire to the west of where we are staying. It seems like the whole state is on fire. On Sunday, there were 10 fires burning in Colorado.
Colorado Springs is having a record-breaking heat wave - not just a Hottest Temperature on This Day in History heat wave, but a Hottest Temperature Ever in the History of Ever Since We Started Measuring heat wave.
On Saturday night, the lady next door came over and told us we didn’t have to worry about evacuating – yet.
We stayed up until 2 am packing.
At the height of the evacuations, 11,000 people had been displaced and over 13,000 structures threatened. So far 3400 acres have burned, with zero structures lost and no injuries reported.
The Air Force is going to send some C-130s this afternoon to help fight it. That should be something to see – the news is warning us to not start freaking out when we see planes flying low and slow over the city.
I talked to the owner of the house we are staying in, and he is graciously going to refund the remainder of our stay. We are leaving tomorrow morning for who-knows-where.
• Happy (and SAFE!) Monday, y’all!
