It is no secret that Colorado is in need of rain! There are currently more then 10 Large Wildfires burning across the state. It breaks my heart to see all these fires and pictures that all my dear friends are posting on their facebook pages. I have lived in this beautiful state my whole life and I love my beautiful mountains. My prayers are being sent out to all those affected. I also want to say a HUGE Thank you to those firefighters. My Daddy has been a firefighter for over 20 years and I know what a toll that can take on a person!

    I have been watching this on the weather channel. It is so heartbreaking. My prayers go out to all as well.

  2. I too have many friends and family in Colorado in the fires’ paths. Here in Utah we’re also starting to see an outbreak of wildfires after the hot / dry winter and spring and there’s really no rain in sight. Thanks for the update!

  3. I was just reading about this in an email that was sent out here at work, and seeing CO facebook friends post about it. My thoughts are with everyone in the area, and I hope that relief comes soon, and continues to pour in via the generosity of others across the US. It’s terrifying and heartbreaking all at the same time.

  4. I sure hope relief comes soon and all the best to those in the area. Best wishes for your safety
