Ok, I don't want to alarm anyone but my town here in Colorado is under an evacuation notice. I think we're going to be ok and the only reason we'd have to evacuate is because of smoke inhalation danger. There is a massive fire that is about 9 miles from my home right now. The wind has picked up causing the fire to change directions and putting us under warning. I will keep everyone posted if we do get evacuated. Tail production is on hold if we do til further notice. Right now, we're ok.

Oh wow! That's scary. Be safe!

I am keeping you in my thoughts!! Always scary. They are going to put a ban on fireworks here because we have severe drought conditions in many areas.

Be safe! Don't be afraid to evacuate when you can.

Sweetie... I would leave in the next 2 days if I were you. It's getting really bad, and I'm terrified bad things might happen. :( I have a bad feeling.... So for my own sanity, fleeeeeeee.

Thank you guys! We're still under an evacuation warning. The winds have picked up because we're now having thunderstorms but the rain should help as long as the wind doesn't blow too hard against the fire fighters trying to stop the fire. As soon as anything changes I will let everyone know. I'm still working, we're ready to go if we need to but I'm trying to get as much done in the meantime that I can. Thanks everyone for your well wishes!!!!

Thanks for keeping us updated Stephanie! These fires are starting to get scary now :( I could see the smoke of the boulder fire from my apartment the other day. Stay safe out there and do not hesitate to evacuate if need be. Praying for you that it will not come to that.

Stay Safe! I'ts really shocking for me to hear about all these fires considering I lived there a couple years ago. The fire is only a couple of miles away from where I lived. One of the places I ate at, it was like a western themed place and it had live music and gift shops, has been burned down. :(

Thank you everyone!!! GOOD NEWS! The fire is at 15% containment and they think that can have it 100% contained by the end of the weekend! I think we're going to be ok! Unfortunately over 300 homes were lost and one life was tragically taken :( But we've had an amazing community step up and take action. I'm proud to live here! Thanks everyone for your well wishes! Back to work now :D :D :D TONS of pictures coming soon!

I'm glad to see you're optimistic, but 15% doesn't seem very high. Is that the percent of the fire's perimeter that's blocked by a fireline to prevent spreading? I'll feel much better when its fully contained.
