>Fourmile Fire.

>Last night we gave HEED, Clif Shot Bloks, and other stuff to the fire department near our house. We don’t train (off season, laziness, call it what you will) and they sure could use it about now. This Fourmile Fire is as close as any fire has ever been to my house. It is still far enough away that we are able to go outside and play soccer.
It is amazing to me that when the reverse 911 didn’t work, the first responders decided to drive up the canyon to knock on people’s doors to let them know that they needed to evacuate. That is brave. People are luck y that nobody has been injured or killed. There were reports that people were sitting in their homes waiting for a reverse 911 call to evacuate. What happened to looking out the window, seeing fire, and leaving? Are we that dependent on being told what to do? The Humane Society is going and rescuing animals. It makes me want to volunteer.
People are going to lose things in this fire. I cannot imagine what I would do if my house burned down, but it is only stuff. At least the people are alright.
The fire isn’t threatening Boulder town yet. I am also lucky that I am not missing a lot of training as I am lazy. I got a new cyclocross bike this week. Pedals should arrive soon. Then I start a new sport this winter.
