Colorado is on fire

And I mean that literally. Not like, "We're on fire! We rock! We are cooler than all the other states!" Because in fact, we are opposite of cooler. We've had like 5 straight days of over 100 degrees here in the Rockies which is some kind of state record. And there are 11 or 12 wildfires burning through out the state. And they are destructive.

My brother-in-law and his family are staring down a fire right now. It's practically in their front yard. They have been evacuated from their house so I'm really hoping all the amazing fire fighters out there can keep these fires at bay.

And I'm hoping for rain. Lots and lots of rain and no more lightening.
