Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts! The fire burned out about a quarter mile away from our house. we're still not out of the woods as all it takes is for the wind to shift our way.

The fire is pushing 40 thousand acres with 0% containment and headed for a bunch of residential areas. Please keep everyone here in your thoughts and prayers.

We are back at our house!

Right now we are working with our church next door to our house with disaster relief stuff. A semi filled with the basics came in yesterday so we spent most of the day offloading, today we will be handing stuff out.

How's it going up there Boba?

55,000 + acres and 181 homes. Unreal. Our whole state is just burning up. (I'm down near Parker.)

All the stuff on the news.. Watching it now. It's just terrible.

Well, looks like there are a ton more houses gone then they have put out. Some people coming through here to get supplies say that 80 homes are down in their residential areas. When the real #s come out I think it will shock some people.

The fire is spreading south, west, and north. Guess it crossed hw 14 again 2 days ago, it's now threating a bunch of homes across 14. We had a bunch of people come yesterday to get supplies who where allowed back in their house only to be evacuated a couple of hours later. Most of them unpacked and didn't have time to re-pack, so they have nothing.

Wow! I know it's around 200 homes lost. Last I heard it was 191.

I just can't imagine losing everything......

Stay safe man!
