    Passed the fire before the highway closed. It blew up fast. Just terrifying this is happening IN THE SPRING.

    June before the monsoons arrive is usually the hottest and driest month in the mountains. 80's are awfully hot for my neck of the woods, however.

    Forecasted high 88F on Tuesday and Wednesday for Dillon. IF so, this will be an all time record high temperature for June, and 1 degree shy of an all time record high temp ever.

    Over/under for how many fires start up this weekend. Iím going with 2 and take the over.

    1 from an asshole throwing a cig out the window, and at least another from a smoldering fire from campers getting their #camplife #vanlife on

    It was 81 in my house this week.....brutal. As bad of a start temp and precip wise it all depends on the monsoons. If they show up in July like normal weíll be ok, if they donít like last year....yikes.

    Western slope is a conservative wasteland. The recreational supply is garbage. I have to go to Ridgeway for the goods.

    Riverís up behind my place. Someone had a little more excitement on the SV this morning than theyíd planned for.


    This is about 20 yards downstream of the bridge they must have wrapped.

    So much for easy in town float.

    I saw them pull it out they said they didnít need help.

    Edit: not sure theyíre planning to come back to get it? Huh. I think it would be fun, knowing there are a bunch of people downstream at the park, to wet it down and set it adrift to float downstream, maybe with a cheap pfd wrapped around the seat? Ya know, for fun.

    Well, in the interest of science. Fill it up with water and drop a M80 in there, see if it knocks the dent out of it.

    Maybe; I mean, Iíve seen Coleman products restored to functionality by far more brutal means than that.

    Some friends of mine tried to run Gore canyon in a canoe like that years ago. Their boat looked like that after, maybe worse.

    It might straighten itself back out if you leave it out in the sun today. 92 degrees in Marble is fucked.

I'm a long way from a fire hydrant, but I have 4500 gallons worth of cistern storage on my lot. It seems like firefighters would want to know that exists/how to access it if shit hits the fan. Maybe I'm wrong, but I imagine rural/wildland FF's have pumps they can drop into on-site water sources if needed.

    They can pump the fuckers dry if it saves my place or a neighbors place, the cost of getting potable water delivered to refill them would be a pittance by comparison.


    We also live far far away from fire hydrants and spent almost 2 weeks evacuated last year due to the Cameron peak fire. We were super lucky, Fire was held about 1/2 mile from our neighborhood. The wild land guys went through our property extensively, moving shit off the deck, away from the garage.. They even relocated a pretty large wood pile I had way too close to my house

    I think the structural protection crews would absolutely tap into that source if they were sitting on your property. Up in the glenhaven area they were pumping water from wherever they could find it to run through improvised sprinkler systems. In some cases they abandoned their position and left pump systems running, saving homes.

    As far as letting the local department sherif know, donít think that would hurt but you may need to directly relay that information to the wild land team responding to an incident.

    After going through this and seeing which houses burned and which ones didnít, existing mitigation work was a huge factor. Wife and I have spent a bunch of time this spring improving the safe zone directly around our home.
