    Forest Fires - June 2012 Colorado

    This forest fire approaches about 50 square miles so far. Some containment but high temps, low humidity and air too bad to fly.

    'Very large, unpredictable' Colorado fire grows

    The first settlers in the Colorado/Kansas plains had a hard life. Even when things were good eaking out a living was barely possible.

    The scariest weather were drought, prarie fire spreading at wind speed, tornados and floods. Hundreds of eastern Colorado agricultural towns disappeared as soon as the farmers could move. Many of those townsites can be roughly located by landmarks, but sometimes are covered with sand, mud or dirt form spring floods.

    And so far we haven't found any buried loot from any farmhouse. Wild fires are bad in open areas, most of the west and southwest also. Having traveled Colorado high country for decades, the beetle killed trees cover, I believe, a million acres? When those dry pines catch fire they almost explode. So we are hoping for some wet weather.

    Traveling through the high country you always see aspen & pine groves surrounded by meadows. Some meadows have actually been sterilized from the hottest fires. And will never recover unless men replant.

    Every state has it's share of natural disasters for sure. Just seems like they all happen at the same time recently.

    Good luck for your communities
