The Black Forest Fire From a Safe Distance

I hope.

Actually, it’s about 17 miles NNE of here. I drove down Broadmoor Bluffs to where I had a good NE horizon to take the shot. The location is about 200 feet higher than downtown Colorado Springs, so it’s as good a vantage point as I’m likely to get.

We’re just looking over our shoulders a lot today. I don’t think we’re going to stop any time soon.

    I snapped a picture from Greenwood Plaza (the 8th floor of Peakview Tower, IQNavigator’s corporate HQ) and tweeted it.

    I spent a year in a place where as soon as the monsoon stopped the dust started blowing in your eyes. It sounds like the world is going that way now.

    Stay safe Jeff, and we will be praying for rain. I would send you some of our first surplus in a decade if I could.
