It’s very dry here in Penrose. The Waldo Canyon Fire is raging 30 miles away in Colorado Springs. The spread of the fire yesterday afternoon was caused by high winds. Firefighters were facing a wall of fire traveling at speeds up to 65mph.
This video was taken from my living room this afternoon at 2:40. I don’t know what the speed of those winds are, but I can tell you I don’t want to be out in them. And it’s just dirt and dust here.
I’m praying right now that they are not experiencing anything like this in Colorado Springs.
