Don’t freak out …

… we’re OK, but a lot of folks aren’t. A burst of 65-mph winds drove the fire downhill into northwest Bibleburg and it set about gobbling up houses like a stoner does potato chips.

There’s a mandatory evacuation in place for basically everything north of I-25/Garden of the Gods, which is about 15 minutes by bike from Chez Dog. But it seems as though the winds have abated. I’m trying to confirm with Satan that he’s not foreclosing on that mortgage he holds on my soul, but I keep getting voice mail.

I’ll keep you posted while we try to figure out what we can’t live without, just in case.

    Sorry but your old friend Beth is freaking out. Worried that you are talking about having to pick and choose priceless possession over others. What has Colorado done to piss off the fire god? Thinking of you and Shannon.

    I started wondering whether this fire might affect you days ago when I first heard about it. You don’t know me, and I don’t know you, but I’ve been following your cartoons and blog for years, and I don’t want anything to happen to you, only because I love your writing style and originality (and politics!). Nobody deserves this crap.

    Cats. Dog. Newest computers. Favorite bike. Clothes. Memories.

    Oh, yeah … take the booze. Don’t leave behind extra fuel (either for the fire, or for yourself).

    Sounds like Zion’s hell is working east. The entire state of Utah is under a red flag warning for high fire danger.

    Seriously, though … hopefully everything stays north of the freeway.

    Hoping things don’t get hotter in your town. Praying for rain and everyone’s safety. Take care.

    Wishing you all the best, Dog. Maybe that stupid hurricane will leave Florida the hell alone and make a bee-line to the northwest ASAP!

    Just saw the latest on TS Debby and now know how uninformed my last post was. Here’s to a monsoon heading your way!

    Last summer, when we had to make similar decisions on what to put in two Subaru Imprezas when the Las Conchas fire topped the ridge just southwest of town, I for the first time wish I had purchased one of those Suburban Assault Vehicles. It was spooky walking through the house taking insurance pictures with the Canon and wondering whether I might never see the place again except as a mortgage-size pile of charcoal (which happened to a lot of people here in 2000 after the Cerro Grande fire. Fortunately, the fire didn’t get down the ridge into Los Alamos. Well, not last year.

    Once again, Ma Nature is having a good laugh at our expense all over the West. The Southwest has always been on the cutting edge of climate change, in case you are wondering why all those abandoned ancient cities down this way (Mesa Verde, etc.). Politicians can promise anything, but they can’t deliver rain.

    Whatever you do, please stay safe. As the primary backup to Live Update Guy, you need to be in one piece. Maybe you should pull a Cheney and get yourself to an undisclosed location.
