Long Week

It has been a long week in Colorado Springs with the Waldo Canyon Fire. It burned into town last Tuesday with a speed that I did not think was possible. I rarely get scared, but Tuesday night I was scared even though I knew that if my house was to burn 50,000 other houses in Colorado Springs was going to burn too. Unfortunately, I know at least 2 people who’s houses burnt down and 1 who’s house was damaged.

Tuesday night, I actually went out to dinner and the restaurant I was at got evacuated. A lot of people were panicking which is about the worst possible thing you could do in an emergency situation. The most important thing to remember when in an emergency is to stay calm. If you panic you put yourself and everyone else around you at risk.

Anyway, I do not want to dwell on the fire. Things are finally starting to get back to normal in Colorado Springs. My house is safe and I will be back posting.
