    ^^^ or we’ll get 2 weeks of WROD before another stay at home. Today’s numbers for a Monday (usually lower) are horrifying.

    No, head up valley toward Carbondale and hang a right. I'm up that other valley a ways.

    this seems to be more of a summit county thread imo, but good news must be spread:

    "8+ inches of snow reported in Vail, Colorado - falling at over an inch per hour"

    To all the people that busted the closures on the West Side of Hwy 34 after the road opened yesterday afternoon: You are selfish assholes

    To all the people that had access to the fire zone and posted pictures online of random peoples houses burned down: You are selfish assholes

    I, along with 100 or so other local contractors, spend the last two days, winterizing homes in the evacuation area due to the fact the electricity and gas is shut off in many areas. The program has been suspended because of the behavior of some self important cunts. It is -15F at my house right now.

    So yeah, that's now it went down. The entry to the burn free neighborhoods on the W side will most likely be delayed while this all gets figured out. I mean it doesn't make much sense to power up the grid when peoples well pumps are on. It will cause a crazy amount of damage.

    If anyone has any questions about specific properties out Trail Creek on 41/412/413, message me, I may know.

    The fire behavior was crazy. It makes no sense. The trees are all standing with there needles on and a house will be totally vanished. Next door, it will be as is nothing happened.

    Sure, let's go with that. I say stupid shit on here sometimes, no need to get into specifics about my place of employment. I'll be living a little ways up the Crystal though.

    saw this on the news last night, my wife even blurted out a "WTF people??" even had a nice old couple interviewed on the news that had to tour the area to "see for themselves" the damage.

    It's almost as if we are also experiencing a pandemic of stupidity/selfishness in this country.

    At least 300 students and staff at Summit High (near 1/3 of the school) were under quarantine as of yesterday, so officials called off in-person learning and everything is virtual for the next 2 weeks. We're fuct.

    I'll do a bit of blogging here. Feel free to repost it elsewhere if you want. Even if you don't know me IRL, most people probably get my MO. I think there is value is getting some info out there respectfully in informal channels.

    There really is quite a bit of good news. One, our community is pretty resilient and helpful so we are pretty well suited to handle this. Two, lose of life is minimal and by a few accounts Lyle and Marilyn chose to go down with the ship. Three, the Town of Grand Lake survived and, at least from what I saw, the forest and such looks to be in pretty good condition. Point being, there is reason to rebuild and reason to come visit. It is not as if it looks carpet bombed never to return.

    The bad is that there is a tremendous amount of destruction. I've only been in a fraction of the fire area but there are a lot of burned houses. From speaking to a couple of lineman, the grid is fucked. It sounds like it may be a while before people get back into certain neighborhoods.

    The addresses up that way are horrible and there are many places with spotty cell service. You might be looking for a house and you can't even find the driveway. It sounds like the building department with some help from the state is trying to inventory everything with the GIS data.

    Here are a few requests. Even if is a second home and you didn't actually evacuate, fill out the evac for. The Sheriff/Government want to try to contact every homeowner but there database doesn't have phone numbers. Please understand that the immediate need is to get evacuee's back into there primary residences. If this is not you, please consider holding off a bit. Also, if you have an AirBnB consider putting that into the long term rental pool.

    Who was asking about the Roadhouse? It made it! Sounds like that have been open. That's how you know thinks are trending in the right direction in Grand Lake. JRs and the Sagebrush are open! I'm more of a Waconda or Sloopy's guy so we'll have a pour one out for Sloopy's.

    Thankfully it sounds like many bullets were dodged. The thing raged through neighborhoods and right at Grand Lake, where firefighters must have put up a good fight to save it, then jumped the divide and headed toward Estes, only to be stopped by lucky timing with the snow and fire fighting at the highway only a mile or two from town.

    I believe this is a better one https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1F...oUPHA/viewform

    It is easier said that done to match a property address to the person that may be living in it....shitty addresses, units sharing addresses, trust ownerships, renters etc. There are some neighborhoods that never lost power, gas, water on sanitation. Sounds like these are getting let back in first.

    I'm not sure how that perimeter is gonna be secured. Yesterday evening they just opened 34 without limitation and stationed LEOs at all the west side closures. This will get harder to do as you move into the neighborhoods.
