Pray for the three local fire-fighters killed last night in our county, fighting two large 9,000 acres fires that sprang up yesterday south of town:
Pilot Gert Marais, 42
Olney Springs Fire Chief Terry DeVore, 30
John Schwartz, 38
And their families (more on the three men and their families)
And for the 1,200 residents who have been evacuated.
Here are some moving pictures taken yesterday.
We are all relieved that it is supposed to rain and snow tonight. In fact, we are expecting blowing snow and 3 - 6 inches overnight. I've already covered my vulnerable bulbs but some of the pots are being blown off already. I'll have to see what I can do about that.
