Some of you saw this already

That was pretty close. Like, I could see flames close. less than 1/2 mile away from the house during the night, it finally moved on around 10:30.

All is well here, in case anyone was wondering. Just a little bit of ash.

    As Duke and Prince were walking out of the door, Prince says “When you see db online, ask him if he’s anywhere close to the fire.” I say, “Ok, but how big do you think his town is??” Good point.

    Glad you are safe. Guess that makes for an exciting weekend, huh?

  2. just heard about it on the news today. Wife pointed at a TV, “Hey Riverside is on the news in Denver.” Riverside was on a map to show where Elsinore was… go figure.
