    It's terrifying. Where is the snowstorm?!

    We’re getting icy mist right now in Gilpin.  Temperature has dropped into the low 30’s.  Maybe just a reprieve but we’ll take anything right now.  The immediate problem for Estes is that embers crested the Divide and started fires on the east side in areas with a lot of beetle kill.  Updated maps of East Troublesome show my old subdivision in Grand Lake (Columbine Lake) is surrounded but still intact.

    This is a great website showing the current fires across the west with frequent updates during the day.

    Isn’t this the place where some sage Polster chimes in to remind us all that climate change isn’t really an “existential threat”??? . . .


    . . . maybe this would be a good time for Ray Scott to school us libs again on how much we’ve improved the climate??!

      Scientists don't know


      If the precipitation isn't big and imminent, Cameron Peak and East troublesome are going to merge. There will be no solace that a lot of the lost homes are insured second homes of people who could afford it.  Hell is Hell.

      • Gilpin Guy says:

        The loss of wildlife and habitat is staggering.  Merging isn't that important.  It just means they can't expand into territory that has already burned.  Their combined totals are already around 400,000 acres of Front Range forest.  The sheer magnitude of loss of life (animal, plant, insect and microorganism) is what makes my heart hurt.
