For those not in Colorado we have had fires galore here. The one we are battling now is the Waldo Canyon fire near Colorado Springs. Multiple houses have been lost and last night it got close enough to the city that the Air Force Academy was evacuated. I am hearing predictions that this could go for a month. Last count of evacuees I heard was approximately 32,000. We have already lost some areas very dear to the city. Firefighters from all over are doing what little they can. Law enforcement and DOT are doing all they can. I have friends and colleagues literally in the middle of this mess. Any and all prayers would be appreciated!

I'm in complete shock! I spent my entire shift in shock last night. Back to do it again today. We will like need more coverage at some point at work so I volunteered my weekend if they need me. And what makes me angry...every time I turn around I hear somebody complaining about no fireworks. Really?!?!?!?!

I believe it's been going almost a week. I know my last day of the work week is Thursday and I believe it started before I went on days off last week. This wind here is fighting against us. That's the sad part. No matter how hard they fight it you can't fight mother nature.

Right?!?! And yesterday on my way to work I saw someone throw a cigarette out their window. Are you kidding me?!?! Let's just start another fire so we can tie up Firefighters that could be going to help with THIS one!

It's insane.....some people just don't get it. I'm hoping they get a good handle on the fire today....although the weather may not cooperate again

I'm in Falcon, just east of COS, and my dad and sisters live in eastern COS. I've got friends who've been evacuated. This is awful.
