Desperate
Watching our beloved mountainside and canyons burn is horrible. The city is a cloud of ash and smoke. Carver's camp is surrounded by fire. It's just so heartbreaking. We are safe. The fire can't get to us. But many, many of our friends have been evacuated and have no clue when they will be able to return home and don't know if the fire will reach their houses. David's school is a command center for media, and Carver's school is a command center for the federal government and fire crews for staging and relief. We feel helpless and weak and trapped. Please pray for a miracle rain cloud.
The wildfire is huge. This photo shows one edge of it creeping toward a neighborhood.

The smoke is overwhelming.

This is what we see from our back porch at night.

This is incredibly, incredibly scary. My thoughts, prayers, and love are with your friends and loved ones. May the rain clouds come, and may they saturate all of our mountains.

We're here in Palmer Lake and the smoke is so bad. We are praying like crazy.
